Yeah, but this is still strange. Both LAN computer and router run 4.19, 
but only router panics. The LAN computer employs alx driver, router 
employs r8169. Both had GRO enabled at the moment of panic. But [1] 
reports that this happens with Intel NIC too, so must not be limited to

Yes, I've gone back to CAKE but with GRO disabled for NIC, and it is 
stable now. I've also asked a bug reporter [1] to do the same, so we 
will see.
