I have strange issue with NIC 'Intel Corporation 82574L Gigabit Network Connection' which is propably integrated in a intel atom motherboard (kimsufi atom).

After I boot a kernel, gentoo-sources 3.9.5, NIC does not respond for about 4 hours, ping neither ssh works. I can boot rescue system there, tunnel over ssh the /dev/sda (nbd) and boot it in qemu-kvm here with no issue, so I know it boots just fine, also the uptime is over 4h as soon as I can get in there. Kernel is absolutly minimal (started with make allnoconfig) so there is no weird drivers and such. After boot I can see in dmesg:

[14600.643213] nf_conntrack: automatic helper assignment is deprecated and it will be removed soon. Use the iptables CT target to attach helpers instead.

And I have no idea what's wrong, the rescue system use 3.8.3 kernel and I can access it as soon as it boot. I have absolutly no idea wtf is going on here.

edit: reproduced like 6 times already, always after 4 hours I can login and ping it...

Try with nf_conntrack.nf_conntrack_helper=0 to disable the helper to see if that fixes it. You might also want to revise the rules in the iptables to use CT instead after that, for more details see
