I have an LNE100TX in a machine that has run 4.5-R, 4.6-R, RELENG_4_6,
RELENG_4, then back to RELENG_4_6 again.  Probe details on 4.6.2-R with
dc compiled in:

dc0: <ADMtek AN985 10/100BaseTX> port 0xd800-0xd8ff mem 0xdf104000-0xdf1043ff irq 9 at device 10.0 on pci1
dc0: Ethernet address: 00:04:5a:59:7c:a8
miibus1: <MII bus> on dc0
ukphy0: <Generic IEEE 802.3u media interface> on miibus1
ukphy0:  10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, auto

The NIC is the external interface on my gateway.  It was originally
connected to an old HP 8-port 10bT hub and is now connected directly to
a Westel DSL bridge.  It has worked seemingly without problems handling
the 768/128 DSL traffic.  I say seemingly because I've never bothered
to really push the NIC and I've never seen any link-level problems.
