SubjectHard freeze on 2.4.1pre9 during fsck

I am experiencing hard lockups (no oops, no response to ALT-SYSREQ) on a
dual pentium pro running 2.4.1pre9. The system has two Promise IDE
controllers installed (PDC20246 and PDC 20262) with a drive hanging off of
each channel. In addition, the onboard PIIX4 has a single drive hanging off
the first channel.

The hard lockup occurs during heavy IO during a boot-up fsck. The system is
fscking three of the four Promise channels and the PIIX4 channel
simultaneously. The system locks up hard after 60-90 seconds of fscking.

Since the system does not respond to ALT-SYSREQ, I have been unable to get
any dumps. Does anyone have any thoughts on how to proceed?
