I can only confirm that strange things are happening indeed with intel's
D815EEA board and 2.4.0 kernels. I have 15 such boxen (and lot more to
come next month), all with exact same configuration, yet 10 of these are
working ok, of other 5 one cant even reach a couple of hours of uptime,
other four managed 2 days uptime so far. They all have installed redhat7
with their rawhide 2.4.0-0.43 kernel rpm. So far all 15 boxen stand
idle, i just ping them from time to time to check if they're still up.
I really _really_ hope this is a hardware problem. One weird thing i
came up with is that all boxen that were crashing have noticeably warmer
cpu heatsinks that those which dont crash, yet all fans were spinning as
they should. So could this be something in the kernel? There are
absolutely no mesgs ni logs indicating that something is wrong...

All suggestions welcome.
