I don't think any of this is particularly unusual.

You said you tried 2 kernels on 2 different machines -
do you see exactly the same behavior in all cases?
Does this lockup seem to depend on whether nfs is enabled?
Does it depend on samba? Does it only happen after a lot
of nfs traffic? Etc...
You can turn on kdb with
$ echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/kdb
then hit the Pause/Break key to get into kdb when things "seem dead" -
"ps" will get you a list of what's running and what state things are in,
"btp <process ID>" will do a backtrace on any process...
kdb is easiest to use if you're at a text console, don't start it from
You can also do it via a serial console.
