It might be worth replacing the sky2 driver with the newest bleeding
edge one over here:

You might also want to check the developer's blog entry:

sky2 1.0?

Looks like a found the root cause of the sky2 hangs on pci-express. I
copied some code from the SysKonnect driver that reconfigured the
pci-express max request size. This probably caused receive dma engine to
fail in face of contention. That will teach me to stop copy/pasting in

It might fix some of you issues ..
