     The bge driver supports IPv4 receive IP/TCP/UDP checksum offload and
     transmit IP/TCP checksum offload, VLAN tag insertion and stripping, as
     well as a 256-bit multicast hash filter.  The BCM5717, BCM5718, BCM5723,
     BCM5754, BCM5755, BCM5761, BCM5764, BCM5784, BCM5785, BCM5787 and
     BCM577xx chips also support IPv6 receive TCP/UDP checksum offload.

     The BCM5700, BCM5701, BCM5703, BCM5704, BCM5714, BCM5717, BCM5719,
     BCM5720, BCM5762, BCM5780, BCM57765 and BCM57766 chips are capable of
     supporting jumbo frames.

     The bge driver supports the following media types:

     autoselect  Enable autoselection of the media type and options.  The user
                 can manually override the autoselected mode by adding media
                 options to the appropriate hostname.if(5) file.

     10baseT     Set 10Mbps operation.  The ifconfig(8) mediaopt option can
                 also be used to select either full-duplex or half-duplex
                 modes.

     100baseTX   Set 100Mbps (Fast Ethernet) operation.  The ifconfig(8)
                 mediaopt option can also be used to select either full-duplex
                 or half-duplex modes.

     1000baseT   Set 1000baseT operation over twisted pair.  Both full-duplex
                 and half-dupex modes are supported.

     1000baseSX  Set 1000Mbps (Gigabit Ethernet) operation.  Both full-duplex
                 and half-duplex modes are supported.

     The bge driver supports the following media options:

     full-duplex  Force full duplex operation.

     half-duplex  Force half duplex operation.

     For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8).

DIAGNOSTICS
     bge0: can't find mem space  A fatal initialization error has occurred.

     bge0: couldn't map interrupt  A fatal initialization error has occurred.

     bge0: watchdog timeout -- resetting  The device has stopped responding to
     the network, or there is a problem with the network connection (cable).
