Right - that's PR 38729 (and 42681).

Not if you use a serial console.  Your virtual network adapter choices
will be rather limited, though; ne2k_isa is probably the best bet.

The PCI issue of PR 38729 has been worked around in -current since CVS
date 2009., but a different problem appeared on
2009. that causes the kernel to hang during boot under
kvm - I just filed PR 44069 about that.  Versions from between those
dates might even work :)
