I am now running with 2.6.18-4-ixp4xx thanks to Martin, and the lockups seem to be gone. The ethernet driver now claims:
ixp4xx_mac driver 0.3.1: eth0 on NPE-B with PHY initialized
The only 'pauses' would seem consistent with being swapped out to disk and back again becusae of low memory.
...And I was thilled to get the intel-iscsi target compiled and running (though it seems a little fragile) serving some of my disk to a separate laptop running another OS. All good. Anyway, its a shame there aren't any iscsi targets going to be in Etch (just the open-iscsi initiator); the closest is the iscsitarget project being packaged on Alioth at the moment, but it requires a (currently un-mainline-merged) kernel module to function. So I think for the moment I will return to either SMB or DAV over SSL for my filesharing needs.
