 that was happen when:
 kern/164145: [netisr] when one of netisr threads take 100% system is going to work unstable
 at this moment I try to restart 'radiusd' and it was STOPped forever
 even when I try to reboot (((( whole system is stopped
 so I need to travel to server to turn it OFF.
 may be in this state just 'jmp BOOTSYSTEM_FROM_BEGINNING'
  (sorry, do no remember address to start BIOS POST)
 and do not allow to hangs forever.
