Subjectahci + software raid (intel E7221, supermicro P8SCT) causes kernel BUG at drivers/scsi/scsi.c:295

Is there any additional information anyone would like? Any suggestions on
this bug? I currently have a reproducible problem, on a system I can
monkey with for the next week or two.

After that, it will have to move into production, and I won't be able to
do much with it. :/



Supermicro P8SCT:

(uses intel E7221/ahci for SATA controller). Hot-swap raid cage. Three
SATA ports in use. Also have two MegaRAID SATA 150-6 onboard, one in
PCI-X slot.

This box will run stable, but at inconsistent times lock up. After
hooking up serial console, we discovered the problem.

FYI, we have three different motherboards from Supermicro, and they all
exhibit the same issue... it is unlikely a fault with our specific

It is easiest to trigger this bug (not certain if this is the only way)
when running software raid, two drives, in stripe mode. Many times this
configuration will cause no isses, other times I get this:

<0>Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception in interrupt

Put another way, I can setup, prep and create a software raid.. format
it.. and start to move data onto it. I can even use it for quite some
time. However, once the above happens once, I can not use that software
raid again until I wipe out the raid and start fresh. Merely booting with
the raid in causes the above problem on bootup...
