Any good suggestions about the "Transmit timed out" messages. It
currently leads to a system that "doesnt die" but doesnt respond within
15 minutes of load of the network adapter.

Does the high amount of Context-switches (120.000+ have any influence)?

Should I be able to use TSO?
# ethtool -k eth4
Offload parameters for eth4:
Cannot get device rx csum settings: Operation not supported
rx-checksumming: off
tx-checksumming: on
scatter-gather: on
tcp segmentation offload: off
udp fragmentation offload: off
generic segmentation offload: off

ethtool v6
