i've never been able to use the gem driver fully stable on sparc64.
for non-nfs root it would eventually soft hang and need an
'ifconfig gem0 down up' to bring it back. for nfs root, this usually
meant a soft hang i couldn't recover from (soft hang, meaning that i
could enter ddb.) i've lost what trust in the the re(4) hardware i
had after the 4th or 5th card failed after 3 years of service.
i have successfully use wm(4), hme(4) and, in -current, bge(4) on
sparc64 and nfs. oh, and le(4) but that was long ago :)
