Izumi suggested improvements to the ale(4) driver some weeks ago

I implemented (most of) Izumi's excellent suggestions without managing
to fix the problem.  It turned out that m_devget(9) behaves differently
under NetBSD and FreeBSD;  removing the ETHER_ALIGN fixed the problem.
I've attached my not-very-tested fix (only if_ale.c needed changes),
which has been working okay on my 100Mb network for the last couple of
hours (and a gigabyte+ of traffic) at least.

Good catch!

It's _almost_ working for me, but I'm having problems with it negotiating correct media type.

Plugged into a 10/100 port, I get status active, but unless I configure 10baseT media, no traffic is sent/received (it negotiates 100baseTX with autoselect). Plugged into a 10/100/1000 port, I get no carrier when set to autoselect or 1000baseT, but it works when hardwired to 10baseT or 100baseTX.

This is all with ukphy.
