    I made some tests again, switching back to the onboard dual aic7902 scsi
    controller (non raid) the tg3 dont hung anymore.
    I just noticed the IRQ mappings change between the two settings.
    The Broadcom eth get always the IRQ #25, the two onboard scsi controllers
    get #24 and #25 (shared with the eth, is it harmful??) but the megaraid
    driver gets the IRQ #28

    I think it is something IRQ related because if the eth hungs but the kernel
    is still running I see more than 140000 irq per second with "vmstat".

    Hope it helps better!
