It looks like you ran pktgen on the embedded system, which exercised 
only the transmit path. Auke indicated that the lockup was in the RU. 
Have you run pktgen on a test system to fire packets at the embedded 
system at max rate? Also test what happens when you fire packets in both 
directions simultaneously.
