i've attached an ethtool dump, ifconfig output, interrupts output and 
lspci output of such a hang. Does the ethtool dump make any sense to 
you? The driver is -rc6 plus the changes below. (but the hang looks 
exactly the same that i got with an unmodified driver. the 
optimization_tweak is a new change too - it drastically improves the 
performance and scalability of the driver btw., by not letting it do 
100-200K irqs/sec (!).)
