I have several of this one:
wm0 at pci4 dev 0 function 0: i80003 dual 1000baseT Ethernet, rev. 1
wm0: interrupting at ioapic0 pin 18, event channel 6
wm0: PCI-Express bus
wm0: 65536 word (16 address bits) SPI EEPROM
wm0: Ethernet address 00:30:48:31:43:82
ikphy0 at wm0 phy 1: i82563 10/100/1000 media interface, rev. 2
ikphy0: 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, 1000baseT, 
1000baseT-FDX, auto

It negociates properly with a 100baseTX or 1000baseT port of a
cisco 3750 serie switch.
This is with a netbsd-5 kernel, sources around the 17 March
