Hello all,

I am running -current from Feb 20 on a Gateway E4500 tower with onboard
BCM5752 ethernet.  While the device is detected by bge, it does not want
to initialize:

bge0 at pci2 dev 0 function 0: Broadcom BCM5752 Gigabit Ethernet
bge0: interrupting at ioapic0 pin 16 (irq 11)
bge0: firmware handshake timed out, val = 0
bge0: RX CPU self-diagnostics failed!
bge0: chip initialization failed

I have tried with and without various combinations of PCI_ADDR_FIXUP,
PCI_BUS_FIXUP, and PCI_INTR_FIXUP to no avail.  I am running with an
ACPI-enabled kernel.  Does anyone have any idea about what's wrong here? 
I'd be happy to provide more data if someone can tell me what to provide.
