I've seen this problem on a NetFinity 5000 with 1.6_BETA3.
I thought Jason's commit in rev 1.10 of sys/dev/pci/if_pcn.c had
fixed this (which I pulled up to -1-6 as rev 184.108.40.206), but obviously
Try booting the machine on 1.6_RC1 without the cable plugged in, and
then plugging the cable in after boot. It is still likely to fail,
but it may not panic immediately.
