It's me again, as problem is not solved and no "clear" answer was
em0 NIC on my storage server hangs every several (2-3) days.
Symptoms are simple: no packets can be send, mbufs are overfilled, "No
buf space to send" error for any program.
Configuration now is VERY BASIC: no polling, no sysctls or
loader.conf tunables AT ALL. No jumbo frames.
nic doesn't show any "Watchdog timeout" / "resetting" messages.
Driver from "em driver, 82574L chip, and possibly ASPM" thread
doesn't help, really: it seems, that it decrease frequincy of hangs,
but doesn't eliminate them, but I can not say for sure, may be
frequency change is only illusion, as it random process.
I've added diagnostic patch from Michael Tuxen.
