on our new Dells I find PCI-ID 14e4:165f (NetXtreme BCM5720 Gigabit Ethernet

support this critter yet.

Is there support in the works for it?

The FreeBSD bge driver has some fixes and support for a feature APE which has 
probably to to with the IPMI support.


1 month ago, I got BCM5179 and BCM5720 cards. The latest bge driver
still has some problems with those cards.

bge0: APE event 0x00010510 send timed out
bge0: block failed to stop: reg 0xc00, bit 0x00000002
bge0: APE event 0x00020510 send timed out

If you got this message, please reboot :-|
The watchdog reset doesn't solve the problem...
After rebooted, it will works... :-|

I suspect some problem exist in bge_attach(), bge_reset()
or bge_init().

 Could you test with the latest -current?
