gem(4) is broken NetBSD 6_BETA (on macppc)
The gem(4) interface on the iBook does not work properly anymore with 6_BETA.
On 5.1_STABLE from some months ago it works like a charm. When having network
usage, the interface somehow gets in an unusable state which hangs the system.
This is a critical problem for me, as the gem(4) interface is my primary
network interface and I often boot this box from network for testing purposes.
On 5.1_STABLE I do not have such problems at all.
When I'm lucky, I see a "gem0: device timeout" kernel message. Sometimes I
don't even see this.
When booting from network, sometimes it stops while processing the init
scripts, sometimes I can log in before it hangs. Keyboard input is processed
(I can read what I type on console), but processes are stalled.
Boot the box from network or generate a lot of network traffic by for example
extracting a big source tarball on NFS.
