ok I have recreated mine, but i don't know if they are related to your problem.
my error msg is
eth1: too many iterations (6) in nv_nic_irq
but the symptoms are the same to yours whenever the clients visits
some network heavy sites they would freeze.
the solutions for me is to create a file "/etc/modprobe.d/forcedeth"
the file would then contain a line
"options forcedeth max_interrupt_work=10"
on further reading I think my problem is related to my network card a
gigabit card from nvidia.
the number 10 above is not a magic number but rather its a trial and
error thing and see what works for you. I don't know yet what is the
implication when this number is set very high.
