If if isn't already off, try disabling PXE/RPL/Netboot agent in the
BIOS. At least with the 575x chips, I see problems where our bge
driver doesn't properly tell the chip to disable the PXE/UNDI stack
when the chip is reset. It almost always happens when warm rebooting
from windows to NetBSD until I PXE boot or hard power off the system
(unplugging it), and sometimes not even then.

Yes, on the GX280, GX620 and Optiplex 745, there are about 6 devices
on IRQ 11, NetBSD fails miserably with both APIC and non-APIC, ACPI
and non-ACPI kernels. Linux works fine.

I don't know how well these new chips that use UAA bus (Universal
Audio Architecture) work, I didn't even try it. Most of the time I
couldn't even type because the USB controllers keep shutting down,
and the NIC doesn't work so I was debugging over serial line. I gave
up when I couldn't even get a PCI ID for the new Broadcom chip
