When your system hangs again, the message "EBTABLES: BEFORE WRITE LOCK"
should be in your syslog, and check that it is not followed by "EBTABLES: AFTER WRITE LOCK".

I have just applied that patch. Tomorrow I will reboot a new kernel. So in about no more than two days, I should get some results.

Is the bridge still forwarding packets while it hangs?

No. Box is completly frozen.

Perhaps try to link all network traffic to one cpu before doing your ebtables updates...

Could you give me more details about that? Should it be done before updating ebtables, and after that reverting? And most important - how? :).
