    Subjectsegfaults, kernel panic using forcedeth nvidia 4

    I'm using debian's 2.6.17-2-amd64 (after having these issues with 2.6.16).

    I'm running software raid 5 and LVM on the partition in question; the
    machine is connected to my server via gigabit ethernet over the onboard
    nforce4 ethernet- my motherboard is Gigabyte GA-M51GM-S2G Socket AM2
    NVIDIA GeForce 6100, and the CPU is a AMD Sempron 64 2800+.

    When I try to rsync from my old server, I get user-land segfaults (bash
    and sh, mostly) and the machine hangs. This happens with straight scp as
    well, and it is 100% replicable. The error messages look like:

    sh[5325]: segfault at 0000000081cc893a rip 00002ae181c2bf02 rsp
    00007fffff927c58 error 4

    I've now successfully tried copying a large number of files via a
    machine connected through a 100mbit connection, without issue.

    This leads me to think that it's forcedeth having the problem, but I had
    also thought that perhaps I'm asking too much of the md/lvm subsystem.

    I've ordered another gigabit ethernet card and a new AMD64x2 cpu, so I
    should be able to test these issues more cleanly.

    In the meantime, is there anything I can do to diagnose these issues?

    Thanks (and please cc me; I'm not a kernel-type by default.)
