Re: re0 watchdog timeouts

FreeBSD also has some problems with Ethernet re driver, at least on some versions of the Realtek 8111/8168/8169 chip.

I actually tested this update, building from NetBSD 7.99.71 i386 installation for amd64.

Intel Sandy Bridge motherboard, MSI Z68MA-ED55(B3).

I booted custom kernel, haven't tried generic on this computer yet for 7.99.71.

I tested this by running "cvs up -dP -A" from top of src tree, and there were no re0 watchdog timeouts.

But the kernel still won't boot on other computer,
Intel Ivy Bridge MSI Z77 MPOWER motherboard; I mentioned this about 10(?) days ago.
