Hans,

What kernel were you using before you updated to that kernel?

Andrew,

I don't think it is a recent regression, I have seen it happening for a while on
my machine, I don't think it is causing any crashes but I am getting unexplained
events about 1x per month that appear to deadlock a number of things (machine is
up, but top won't run and vmstat actually gets a FP exception on the second
sample, and a number of other things have issues until reboot).

I have 4 identical disks, 2 on a sata_sil and 2 on another controller, the ones
on the sil controller have this behavior, I have seen it in 2.6.23.1,
FC7-2.6.23.15-80 and FC7-2.6.22.9-91. My sil is a 4-port 3114 PCI card, and my
disks are 500GB Western Digital disks. I have a fairly long run with 20-30
events on the 2 disks on the sata_sil and no events on the identical non-sil
disks that had previously been getting resets (when on the sil controller), and
since they are under software raid5 all 4 disks should have very very similar IO
loads.

Roger
