Using an IBM ThinkPad 770 with the
Intel EtherExpress(TM) PRO/100 PC Card Mobile Adapter16
is a no go in RELENG_5_0, this worked fine in 4.7-RELEASE
also i had to use the "OLDCARD" style pcmcia driver, the new
one won't work.

pccard: card inserted, slot 0
xe0 at port 0x240-0x24f iomem 0xd4000-0xd4fff irq 3 slot 0 on pccard0
xe0: Intel CE3, bonding version 0x45, 100Mbps capable
xe0: DingoID = 0, RevisionID = 0, VendorID = 0
xe0: Ethernet address 00:a0:c9:37:21:ef
<dhclient start here, still no link>
xe0: watchdog timeout; resetting card
<now we have link and dhclient gets an ip address>

Now for the real fun, oversized frames:
# ping -c 1 darkstar
PING ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=0.668 ms

# ping -c 1 -s 2000 darkstar
PING ( 56 data bytes
xe0: discard oversize frame (ether type 800 flags 3 len 1518 > max 1514)
xe0: discard oversize frame (ether type 800 flags 3 len 1518 > max 1514)

# ifconfig xe0 | grep mtu

any ideas?
