With a quick grance, if cobalt quirk is handled in
sys/dev/pci/if_tlp_pci.c, no other SROM contents are
used in sys/dev/ic/tulip.c, and if it always uses 10baseT
we can't get rate >1MB/sec, I think.

What does "ifconfig -m tlp1" say on your Qube (or Qube2)?
Can you check SROM contents of both tlp by enabling
"tlp_srom_debug = 1" in tulip.c?
