I understand  what you are saying Mike,

But here is the issue:

I built a 5.1-RELEASE box and cvsuped it to -p10. After reboot I am getting
a flood of "bge0 : gigabit link up" messages. I am on version 1.41 of the
driver ... the latest cvs submission was 1.55. A newsgroup posting
suggested that I need the latest code to make this issue go away.

I do not want to go to -CURRENT because this will be a production box.

So what am I supposed to do ?

Help appreciated :),

Unless you really know what you are doing (in that case you would not need 
to ask this question) it is HIGHLY recommended NOT to do this.  The bge 
driver in its latest form could depend on other parts of the kernel that 
would also need to be updated.  You really should cvsup everything, not
