Well I put interrups from NIC, namely tx/rx query, to different
processors and got normal pings by adding LOG rule.

I also found that overruns is constantly growing, I don't know if these are connected.
RX packets:2831439546 errors:0 dropped:134726 overruns:947671733 frame:0
TX packets:2880849825 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

Rather strange that only one processor was involved, even in top was
clear that ksoftirqd eats the first processor up to 100%. 

Here goes the typical distribution of interrups on new servers:
           CPU0    CPU1    CPU2    CPU3 ... CPU23
752:         11       0       0       0 ...     0 PCI-MSI-edge eth0
753: 2799366721       0       0       0 ...     0 PCI-MSI-edge eth0-rx3
754: 2821840553       0       0       0 ...     0 PCI-MSI-edge eth0-rx2
755: 2786117044       0       0       0 ...     0 PCI-MSI-edge eth0-rx1
756: 2896099336       0       0       0 ...     0 PCI-MSI-edge eth0-rx0
757: 1808404680       0       0       0 ...     0 PCI-MSI-edge eth0-tx3
758: 1797855130       0       0       0 ...     0 PCI-MSI-edge eth0-tx2
759: 1807222032       0       0       0 ...     0 PCI-MSI-edge eth0-tx1
760: 1820309360       0       0       0 ...     0 PCI-MSI-edge eth0-tx0

On the old ones:
           CPU0       CPU1       CPU2  ...      CPU8
502:  522320256  522384039  522327386  ... 522380267 PCI-MSI-edge eth0
