Yep. That's what i found, too...

Yep. I've found a SUN FRU Number on another card (501-6719-04), indicating
it's a "Sun GigaSwift Ethernet Adapter"...

Thanks for the link!

-remotely- ;-) after modifying src/sys/dev/pci/if_gem_pci.c a little,
the cards are recognized, but far from doing something usefull:
gem0 at pci2 dev 1 function 0: National Semiconductor product 0x0035 (rev. 0x30)
gem0: interrupting at ioapic1 pin 2 (irq 10)
gem0: Ethernet address 60:97:63:80:ff:ff, 972524KB RX fifo, 9KB TX fifo
ukphy0 at gem0 phy 1: Generic IEEE 802.3u media interface
gem1 at pci9 dev 0 function 0: National Semiconductor product 0x0035 (rev. 0x30)
gem1: interrupting at ioapic4 pin 0 (irq 5)
gem1: Ethernet address e0:8f:63:80:ff:ff, 2095030KB RX fifo, 9KB TX fifo
ukphy1 at gem1 phy 1: Generic IEEE 802.3u media interface
gem2 at pci9 dev 1 function 0: National Semiconductor product 0x0035 (rev. 0x30)
gem2: interrupting at ioapic4 pin 1 (irq 11)
gem2: Ethernet address e0:8f:63:80:ff:ff, 4294940104KB RX fifo, 9KB TX fifo
ukphy2 at gem2 phy 1: Generic IEEE 802.3u media interface
and so on for the other two "gem's" on the quad port board...
The MAC-adresses aren't looking sane and I think the value for RX fifo
is a little high, too. ;-) I can ifconfig(8) a inet number, interface
goes up, but that's it...
gem2: flags=8c63<UP,BROADCAST,NOTRAILERS,RUNNING,OACTIVE,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
media: Ethernet autoselect (10baseT)
inet 10.90.40.29 netmask 0xfffffe00 broadcast 10.90.41.255
(10bastT is ok, as it's hooked up to an old 10Mbit hub...)
Maybe I can spend some time over the weekend looking into this...
