Looks like I may have spoken a bit too soon. The problem is partially fixed,
but I'm still having a few problems. After the system was up I ran cardctl
eject 0 to stop and let me remove my Ethernet card and I got the follow

Disabling IRQ #10

Subsequent attempts to replicate the error have been unsuccessful, so it
doesn't appear to be a big problem.

On a related note now my second NIC works so it looks like they were indeed
the same bug (or at least a related one).
