Yeah, I just tried the latest "Freesbie" Live-CD (2.0.1), which boots
up okay without ACPI...and bfe0 is also working the way it should!

I can UP and DOWN the interface without problems, and it receives an
inet address from my router's DHCP server. Assigning an address
manually via ifconfig also works fine, the system doesn't freeze at
all in any case.

So I think I should start comparing both bfe implementations, I guess.

Enjoy the show
