could you try a recent kernel without SCSI support, like:
Also, your previous kernel might have been compiled without DIAGNOSTIC in
which case those errors are silently ignored (and packets dropped).
If you can build a kernel, then you could also try a kernel with SCSI but
with the panic commented out, it's in sys/arch/next68k/dev/mb8795.c around
line 1066.
Could you also write down those ARP messages you mentioned?  Or anything
that would help to let me reprdouce this problem would make it easier to fix
it ;-)
