In have to enable full duplex anyway, because the cisco doens't support
1000baseT HD.
depending on the order I do things, the cisco and NetBSD will show
link up or not, but despinte showing link up it's not working.
tcpdump shows incoming packets through, so it may be a send-only problem.
No errors on the cisco side.
