SUMMARY: Network issue in Solaris 10 update 4

Problem resolved thanks to Sun Support:

A recap of the issue + solution:

- our network was working fine, no known issues.
- we upgrade to Solaris 10u4, those machines start dropping network.
- no other machines are affected; Windows, Linux, *BSD, Solaris <= 10u3
   are all fine.
- the solution is to upgrade any other machines that are using broadcom
   nics in teaming mode.

Apparently the cost of being more RFC-compliant is enhanced vulnerability 
to arp poison.

Thanks again to everyone for their help & tips.
