applying the delta from  -r1.138 -r1.139 of if_bge.c to the netbsd-4  
src produces:

bge0 at pci5 dev 9 function 0: Broadcom BCM5704C Dual Gigabit Ethernet
bge0: interrupting at ioapic2 pin 0 (irq 11)
bge0: firmware handshake timed out, val = 4b657654
bge0: RX CPU self-diagnostics failed!
bge0: chip initialization failed
bge1 at pci5 dev 9 function 1: Broadcom BCM5704C Dual Gigabit Ethernet
bge1: interrupting at ioapic2 pin 1 (irq 12)
bge1: firmware handshake timed out, val = 4b657654
bge1: RX CPU self-diagnostics failed!
bge1: chip initialization failed

Are there more patches that should be pulled-up?  Pull-up ticket #918  
only lists this one..
