As many suggested, I did:
ifconfig down hme0
ifconfig hme0 unplumb
remove /etc/hostname.hme0 (didn't exist)
None of these things worked. Finally it looked like turning off the
tpe-link-test in the eeprom stopped the messages and that is what I
summarized as the fix. Well I guess turning off the tpe test is not good
since I could not ping after I did that. I should have checked before I
summarized. At multi-user I used eeprom to turn it back on now I can ping
and I don't get the message anymore. Maybe rebooting the system after doing
the unplumb was the fix, I'm not sure. Sorry for the confusion and thanks
to all for the speedy response.
