System freeze after bootup, most probably because of nForce Ethernet driver

On my desktop PC, Haiku freezes a few seconds after the desktop shows up. Experimenting with disabling onboard devices in the BIOS let me find out that Haiku works fine when onboard Ethernet adapter (nForce) is disabled.
Further information (I will abbreviate 'nForce Ethernet adapter' as NFE now):
- I'm attaching two text files with output from KDL "ints" command (one with NFE enabled in BIOS, one where it's disabled). With NFE enabled, there is a big number of interrupts for nforce:nfe_intr -- and this is just 10-15 seconds after bootup, when the system was already frozen. Also, with NFE enabled, there are a lot of unhandled apic_timer_interrupt.
- Also attaching two complete bootlogs, one for NFE enabled, one where it's disabled
- Since the system only works with NFE disabled, listdev, listimage and listusb are only provided with NFE disabled.
- Something I noticed which might be of interest too, not sure if it's related to my issues: When I start the listusb command in the terminal, it takes 5-6 seconds to finish, it makes several pauses while outputting USB device info.
- This issue seems similar to #3260 , however that one was marked as fixed long ago
