The problem from what I can tell has more to do with netbsd wanting the first
interface found to be the primary interface. As of yet, I have not found any
way to manually configure the choice of the primary interface.
As for the 3c905, I think it has more to do with that when the its config'd
into the kernel, it becomes the first interface.
The current list is this:
$ ifconfig -l
ep0 ne0 ne1 lo0
