Can you enable the NMI watchdog? It could be a PCI bus lockup (in which
case nothing will help), but if it's some interrupts-off busy loop
(whether due to a spinlock deadlock or due to the driver just spinning)
then nmi-watchdog should help.

Of course, that requires that you have support for local/io-APIC (ie if
UP, please select CONFIG_X86_UP_.*APIC)
