I am seeing exactly the same problem under 2.4.0-test7. Mine is a little
different. I'm using the Promise Ultra66 controllers (I have 2). It works
fine on 2.2.15pre13 with the uniform IDE 6.30.

The system locks up in the same fasion (No SysRQ, complete lockup) when
lvm starts (which scans all the drives)

Here the relevant bootup (From the 2.2.15pre13 that works):
