eth1: too many iterations (6) in nv_nic_irq

I sent this as a reply to an old topic about firefox, but I decided
since this is not a firefox question, I'd send
it again with a more pertinent subject line.
Recently we've had our edubuntu server become unresponive when we have
20 or so users on it. We are running a two dual cores and 8 gigs of
ram so I don't think the CPU or memory is the problem.
When I look at syslog or do dmesg I see "eth1: too many iterations
(6) in nv_nic_irq." these are typically the last messages logged right
before my server locks up and needs a hard reboot.
I see folks ran into this problem last August.
I was wondering if jbarry (the person who first reported this
problem) ended up merely replacing the nics or did anyone go with
creating a file called "/etc/modprobe.d/forcedeth" and putting
"options forcedeth max_interrupt_work=10" in it. Did it work?
I am trying to decide which
course to take and I'd appreciate any ideas folks could give me.
