Both tulip and dmfe were being loaded by default. This tip, and some
googling based on it and Lucas's information, led me to try removing
*tulip* to force it to use dmfe instead, which worked! (posting this
from 013.) Lucas, I don't know whether the dmfe patch was actually
necessary or not, but I'll be holding onto it for the next time I
recompile a kernel just in case.

I added tulip to the blacklist in /etc/modprobe.conf, rebooted, and it
worked without requiring any manual modprobe'ing. Thanks very much to
both of you for the help! I'd tried to troubleshoot this myself a few
times before and gotten nowhere.
