RedHat released a kernel update last week to correct a deadlock in the tg3
driver. The errata description is:
     Updated kernel packages for Red Hat Linux 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, and 8.0 are now
     available that fix a deadlock with the tg3 driver on certain revisions of
     the Broadcom 570x gigabit ethernet series
