For me, the "em0 watchdog timeout" issue on my SMP machine seems to be
tied to the onboard em device, which happens to be a PCI-Express
I plugged in another Intel gigabit card, a PCI-X card (an Intel
82545GM "Pro/1000 MT Server Adapter"), and all my problems have
disappeared. I've got my test case running in a while(1) loop, and I
haven't had a watchdog reset or an NFS timeout in several hours.
As far as I can tell, both cards are supported by the em driver in
FreeBSD. I'll be shutting off the PCI-express devices in BIOS and
using the PCI-X card.
