Hmmm, then there must be some other reason for it not to transmit any

Are you running -current or -5?  There have been some patches for
82575 and 82576 support -- these chips use a default register-level
interface more like that of the newer Intel 10Gb chips, and so we have
to explicitly set them up in a compatibility mode.

I'm running -current as of a few days ago.  I'm updating to today's
bleeding-edge -current as I type this - build should be finished soon.
