I saw this when I breathed in the wrong place in via.c (actually, when I
tried to speed up the interrupt handling some).  The kludge that I
checked in yesterday should help you with this because it forces a
call to the nubus interrupt handler when the device times out.  If
the ethernet card is not requesting an interrupt (unlikely), it will
do the "ae0: device timeout."  Otherwise, it'll just proceed.  This
is wrong, but it keeps me from having to reboot to use the ethernet
again when it loses a slot interrupt.

I'm still puzzling over the right way to fix this...
