What may be happening ? I'm with polling enabled on all interfaces, can 
you influence ?

em0: <Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Connection 6.9.6> port 0x7000-0x703f mem 
0xdfa00000-0xdfa1ffff irq 16 at device 8.0 on pci4
em1: <Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Connection 6.9.6> port 0x7400-0x743f mem

em2: <Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Connection 6.9.6> port 0x8000-0x803f mem 
0xdfb00000-0xdfb1ffff irq 16 at device 8.0 on pci5
em3: <Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Connection 6.9.6> port 0x8400-0x843f mem

em7: <Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Connection 6.9.6> port 0xa400-0xa43f mem 
0xdfd20000-0xdfd3ffff irq 17 at device 8.1 on pci8
fxp0: <Intel 82551 Pro/100 Ethernet> port 0xb000-0xb03f mem

If I disable the polling, no network interface work, begins to display 
"em4 watchdog timeout".
