My -current play-alpha has an fxp, and recently (the last few months)
it's started playing up when it gets to the "ifconfig fxp0" bit.  Using
an known old working kernel didn't help.  The only way I know of to
ensure a successful boot is to make sure I type "init" at SRM before
booting each time.

I'm putting it down to some weird hardware lossage for now and haven't
really looked any further...
