nfe0 ping and dhclient problems
I'm running -HEAD as of today and nfe0 doesn't seem to work 100%.
I can ping to another computer on the same network (directly connected
via a 100 MBit/s switch), but I can't ping the DragonFly box from the
other machine. Also, dhclient doesn't work on the DragonFly box!
I've also tried setting hw.nfe0.imtimer=-125 but that doesn't help

Try backing out a rev or two. Well, try backing out one rev of
if_nfe.c (back down to 1.30) and see if that works ok.

No luck either! I can ping out, but not in, as before.
To rule out other possible problems, it works fine when booting from a
FreeBSD 7.0 cdrom.
Here is pciconf, ifconfig and dmesg output:

Hehe, I see. I wanted to change that code for a long time. MCP61 and
above has different MAC address order. Linux also added some code to
adjust TX_POLL, but it does not affect MCP61 and above. Please test
the attached patch.
