After having performed a manual installation from media, I have noticed problems with the Ethernet interfaces on this system - packets were timing out, connections seemed dropped. A look into "fmadm faulty" presented me with a couple of events for pci@0,0/pci8086,3c08@3/pci15d9,1521. According to "prtconf -v" it is a "pciclass 0200" (Network Controller) and is carrying a "compatible" alias of pci8086,1521 (Intel i350 Powerville NIC). I double-checked with other OSes and the NICs seem running quite fine on the same machine, so the problem is apparently with the hardware's driver.
At least I am sufficiently positive now that it is not an AI issue, thanks for reading.
