And like I said, I didn't even scan the logs. Just quick idea off top
of my head based on similar behavior. Could well be entirely different
underlying cause. Yes, the bge is broadcom but I think there have been
issues with other nics.

I didn't mean to imply that I had the same mainboard you reported. I
have a few different nics lying around so for me this was easy test: bge
-> high cpu load under 'idle'; nvidia -> goes away.

Is this laptop of desktop? If latter, can you just try a different
card? If so, OI should automatically detect and load appropriate

Np. Sorry is wasn't much help. But I see others are putting you on
diagnostic dtrace track so I'll bow out now. Good luck :)
