i spoke too soon. The Gbit interface still dies. Lasted around 19hrs. or so. i can't tell if there are hardware issues: yesterday a Gbit NIC on the firewall died. Different chip (Realtek), different driver, different machine, same segment. Segment is a mix of 100Mbit and 1Gbit machines.

Symptoms of the failure are it just stops functioning with no error messages. ifconfig says there are packets being TX'd and none being RX'd. Interface can't be brought up again.

If you search through my exchanges with Adrian Bunk WRT sk98lin removal, I mentioned a very similar problem. When I wrote that I had some notes in front of me, which are now archived and not quickly available. unloading and reloading the modules didn't fix it, IIRC.

I will be doing an update on the machine in question by the end of the year, and at that time I will try shy2 again, since I'll be able to do better testing.
