A box running 2.0.27 hung last night, the last 2 entires in the syslog 
were:-

kernel: hda: status error: status=0x50 { DriveReady SeekComplete }
kernel: hda: drive not ready for command
Then the machine stopped handling any user processes, but the kernel was
still there - tcp connections to it connected and then hung, packets were
still routing through it. Basically it behaved as though the disk was off
line and so nothing other than pure kernel stuff was working.

As I understand it, the "status error" there is actually an OK state -
just it wasn't expecting the SeekComplete part.

Is this consistant and expected... should I be suspecting the disk or
what... (clues welcomed!). I have seen something very similar on another
identical box recently - unfortunately I reinstalled it so don't have the
exact error codes around.

Presumably I could use the watchdog code to cause a reboot under these
conditions....
For information, the machine is a Cyris 6x86 based system, pretty new,
with Seagate HD, and Intel 82371 IDE - relevent chunks of boot info and
/proc/pci are:-

kernel: hda: Seagate Technology 1275MB - ST31276A,
1221MB w/0kB Cache, LBA, CHS=620/64/63
kernel: hdc: MATSHITA CR-583, ATAPI CDROM drive
kernel: ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on irq 14
kernel: ide1 at 0x170-0x177,0x376 on irq 15

Bus 0, device 7, function 1:
IDE interface: Intel 82371 Triton PIIX (rev 2).
Medium devsel. Fast back-to-back capable. Master Capable.
Latency=96.
