The eth reordering isn't because of the kernel.  Naming and module
loading are done by udev/systemd.

The hangs are a different matter.  If you have backtraces, please file
bugs.  If you don't, please consider installing kernel-debug to see if
you can get more debug data, or try to figure out what causes the hang
and then file a bug.

That's a choice you can make.  I'll just caution that the issues
you're seeing are likely not specific to the Fedora kernel and that
you'll hit similar issues with any flavor of newer kernel you use.  We
really don't carry many patches on top of upstream, and those that do
are usually queued for upstream already.  Dropping back to a kernel
that is many versions old can help, but it won't last.
