so maybe debian and redhat add some patches to prevent it ? 

found this on redhat (a lot of patches) : 
[Broadcom 5.6 FEAT] Update bnx2 to 2.0.8+ 

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=568601 

The following upstream patches have been applied to these rpms.
  1. netdev: Remove redundant checks for CAP_NET_ADMIN
  2. bnx2: avoid compiler errors
  3. bnx2: EEH is failing without timout
  4. bnx2: protect tx_timeout_reset with rtnl_lock()
  5. bnx2: dump some state during tx_timeout()
  6. bnx2: print warning when unable to allocate
  7. bnx2: read firmware version from VPD
  8. bnx2: update version to 2.0.3
  9. bnx2: Refine VPD logic
 10. bnx2: reset_task is crashing the kernel
 11. bnx2: Fix bnx2_netif_stop() merge error
 12. bnx2: Flush the register writes which setup the MSI-X
 13. bnx2: Refine statistics code
 14. bnx2: Save statistics during reset
 15. net: remove HAVE_ leftovers
 16. bnx2: Check BNX2_FLAG_USING_MSIX flag
 17. bnx2: Need to call cnic_setup_cnic_irq_info() after
 18. bnx2: Adjust flow control water marks
 19. bnx2: Allow for user-specific multiple advertisement speed
 20. bnx2: Fix bug when saving statistics
 21. bnx2: Update firmwares and update version to 2.0.8

To get the "2.0.8+" part, incorporate patches in RHEL6:
  1. bnx2: Fix netpoll crash
  2. bnx2: Use proper handler during netpoll
  3. bnx2: Update 5709 MIPS firmware mips = 5.0.0j15 rv2p = j10
  4. bnx2: Fix hang during rmmod bnx2
  5. bnx2: Always enable MSI-X on 5709

no, it is not redhat based. But we use the bnx2 driver from Broadcom in both versions.
