I haven't seen something like this - but then I am not a heavy user of
the network on the board. 

Is it just the network that dies or the whole system freezes? Sometimes
I've seen the board lock up if it's under heavy load.

If you are only seeing the problem with recent kernels, maybe a bisect
might help narrow things down.
