Wanted to let you know that this problem seems to be fixed for us.

We received a preliminary update from Supermicro which contains a new NIC
firmware 2.5 they recently received from your side with improved Shared LAN
support (56313.eep, release date 2008-10-01) .

After flashing this update together with a new BMC card firmware 1.59, the
problem has finally vanished for us. (For some reason, only updating the
NIC firmware wasn't possible, so we can't unfortunately nail down which
update part really fixed the problem.)

1.5 days of an rmmod/insmod loop and 2.5 days of a complete OS reboot loop
now have been passed w/o problems. Both tests triggered the problem
reliably within at most one day before.

So thanks again for your help!
