Hmm.. no SCSI drive here, has to wait until tomorrow...

Sources are -current as of two/three days.
The very same card works fine in my PC under netbsd-i386 (same source base).
I tried three 905B cards, two of them gave that panic, the third probed
ok, but is catatonic (even in my PC) when it comes to transmitting packets....
I may get hold of a Intel EtherExpress something and/or a 905C and try those
As far as I could follow the panic, the problem is that the MII PHY on the card
does not give back the supported media correctly (register reads as 0x0000....)
