Addendum to former message (I pasted the wrong thing). :
eth0: Infinite loop in interrupt, status 2011.
These are "mostly harmless" message indicating that the driver had too
much work during
that interrupt cycle. With a status of 0x2011 you are receiving packets
faster than they can
be removed from the card. This should be rare or impossible in normal
Possible problems are
a "green" mode enabled that slows the processor down when there is
some other device or device driver hogging the bus or disabling
/proc/interrupts for excessive interrupt counts. The timer tick
interrupt should always
be incrementing faster than the others.
