Since the IRQ workaround has a timeout of 100ms. I observed cases where
the TCP connection dropped (because of lost packets), but the network device
then recovered.  Can you ping the other side after it hangs?  Or reconnect?

Ifconfig lumps a bunch of different errors together so it can confuse the issue.
Preference is for:
 	ip -s -s link show eth0
or 
	grep -v '^0' /sys/class/net/eth0/statistics/*

If the framing error does reproduce with the hang, perhaps the chip needs some
receive flush logic to recover. Receive errors normally put a message in syslog
output, did you look there?

You aren't hung because of lost IRQ. When than happens the debugfs output will have
a bunch of Tx packets stuck (not cleaned up), and Status messages, and receive packets.
