I have had the same problem, as shown here:
According to your pciconf output, your card either doesn't support MSI-X,
or you have MSI-X disabled.
Check the hw.pci.enable_msix sysctl and make sure that it is set to 1. Also
check to make sure there aren't any BIOS settings blocking MSI-X.
Apparently the older Intel gigabit cards don't support MSI-X, and as such
However, I haven't had the problem rear it's ugly head in quite a while,
but that's with the newest 8.2-STABLE tree. No idea if it's just chance or
if something was actually fixed.
When it was happening to me, it would also happen about every week or two
and I'd have to reboot the server.
