    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)
