I'm sorry, but I have to say that we seem to be suffering
from the very same problem. :-(
We have a bunch of Compaq DL360G2 (about 20 of them) at a
customer of ours, each of them has two Broadcom gigabit
interfaces (bge0 and bge1). There are spontaneous reboots
when a machine is under high network load. It seems to
happen under 4.7-Release as well.
This is a pretty critical issue for us, because we cannot
easily replace those machines, nor can we plug in other
gigabit cards (those are 1U servers and we need the two
on-board interfaces). The consequence would be that the
OS might have to be changed, since we haven't experienced
any reboots under Linux on a test machine so far. :-(
Any help is greatly appreciated. I'm willing to assist in
whatever way necessary to resolve this issue.

that 10 or 15 years from now, she will come to me and say "Daddy, where
were you when they took freedom of the press away from the Internet?"
