    SubjectRe: 2.6.9: unkillable processes during heavy IO
    I had similar hanging with mysql on 64bit_debian@A64 3500+ + mysql 
    4.1.5. 1GB memory.

    After digging around I added "skip-concurrent-insert" to mysql conf and
    those hangs disappeared.
    It might be mysql problem (not kernel) on 64bit linux.

    Although my mysql processess where killable with -9.
