bce(4) and rx errors

Vlad GALU-2
  Hello. Sorry for crossposting, but I wasn't sure which mailing list
was the most appropriate for this email.
I have an application pulling about 220Kpps from a bce(4) card
(details below). At what seems to be random times, errors start
showing up on that interface (I'm watching it with netstat -w1 -I), so
about 10% of the initial 220Kpps is reported as errors. Bringing the
interface down and then back up clears the errors, but they do
reappear at a later time. Before they reappear, the systems manages to
pull the full 220Kpps as before.
  This is a temporary setup, we'll very soon use an Intel fiber card,
but I thought this issue was worth mentioning, as I don't think it's a
hardware problem (the switch also reports no errors).

  The system is running a fresh (yesterday's) RELENG_7. The card is
onboard, on a HP DL380 G5. Here's the pciconf output:
