We will need some logs from the hung drac.  But before that we need to
confirm if the DRAC can be communicated from the host-OS. I need you to
confirm if you can send racadm commands from the host OS. Please confirm
the same.

at one site i can see ~10 broadcasts per second, on another - ~2.
most of them are arps [ they are used for interface bonding to detect if
failover is needed ].

there are lldp packets too [ i've tried disabling them but dracs were
hanging ]. there is no stp / ospf or other similar traffic in the lan
no packet storms neither.
