It is a warning that just means the transmitted on the network device
stalled for an unusually long period of time. Is your subnet flooded
when these warnings occur? Is the remove side system wedged or at a
very high load when the message triggers?

All of these would be useful points of information to determine if
this might be normal or not.

In theory, if the remove port the device is connected to gets
extremely congested, emits a pause frame to your machine, but never
releases that pause, this (new) warning could trigger.

This warning was added by Arjan in 2.6.25 FYI in order to diagnose the
not-normal cases better.
