In your dmesg:
"bge0: PHY read timed out"
In the new patch, following line should be printed instead:
"bge0: PHY read timed out (phy %d, reg %d)"

I would just do:
make -j 3 quickkernel KERNCONF=FUJITSU && make installkernel KERNCONF=FUJITSU
and then reboot
If there are no other NICs using miibus and you don't have miibus in
kernel config, you could safely skip the installkernel and rebooting
steps, and do following instead:
