I have an Asus K8V-SE-D with a similar bug.  The onboard sk0 works for
light-duty use, but running NFS across locks up the ethernet pretty
quickly.  (ifconfig down/up will unlock it.)

FYI: This bug isn't just a netbsd bug.  I can see it under obsd too
and the freebsd folks also complain about network hangs with the
onboard sk0.
