what looks strange to me, is that the interfaces aren't allocated
> wm0: Ethernet address 00:11:43:ce:67:38
> wm1: Ethernet address 00:04:23:b4:e2:5c
> wm2: Ethernet address 00:04:23:b4:e2:5d
> wm3: Ethernet address 00:11:43:ce:67:39
I would expect to see wm3 beeing called wm1 (the onboard ports)
wm1 called wm2 and wm2 called wm3 (the PCI-card).
Hm, if I remember correctly, the interfaces were numbered differently
in the other dmesg you posted, but not in the "natural" order, too...
I've no real data to back up what I call natural order, yust a gut

But maybe it makes some sense...
