There are two different commits of newer date in the current mainline kernel, which seem to fix timeout problems related to i40e.

i40e: Fix for Tx timeouts when interface is brought up if DCB is enabled
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?h=v4.20-rc3&id=fa38e30ac73fbb01d7e5d0fd1b12d412fa3ac3ee

I assume, that this should fix the bug mentioned above, as DCB is enabled in the i40e dmesg output.

Another recent fix, makes reset after timeouts more seamless (as of today, only in linux-next):

i40e: prevent overlapping tx_timeout recover
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git/commit/?h=next-20181120&id=d5585b7b6846a6d0f9517afe57be3843150719da
