We have some known issues around this problem. I'll need some more info to debug it.

How is the device configured? What drivers are loaded on all ports? Can you send an ethtool -i <dev> output as well as an ethtool <dev> output? I also need an lspci -vv for the entire system. Do you have any virtualization configured in your setup? If so, what exactly and how are the ethernet devices configured in that?
