Nice info.

No joy.

The bcme driver doesn't give any information on frames and the data  
that the Fujitsu in those examples does.

dladm options like --statistics don't work either.

Maybe this is just a really crappy driver, and hopefully Sun will  
write a better one than what Broadcom supplies.

kstat is a cool program BTW.  Lot's of interesting information on the  
other drivers on the system too.

It will be nice when Solaris x86 starts getting better system  
information.  Right now very few systems support things like  
temperature, CPU debugging/counter information, etc.

In the last 2 years, the support level for x86 has really increased  
though, and it seems to be getting more popular.
