machine or portions of the machine entirely.

[3.] Keywords (i.e., modules, networking, kernel):

kernel, filesystem, raid, smp

[4.] Kernel version (from /proc/version):

Linux version 2.2.19 (root@deathstar.gkg-com.com) (gcc version egcs-2.91.66 19990314/Linux (egcs-1.1.2 release)) #1 SMP Fri Apr 27 10:49:53 CDT 2001

[5.] Output of Oops.. message (if applicable) with symbolic information
resolved (see Documentation/oops-tracing.txt)

it takes weeks.

[7.5.] Other information that might be relevant to the problem
(please look in /proc and include all information that you
think to be relevant):

This problem seems to occur when writing to the dac960 array usually. I dont
know if that is coincidence or if the dac960 is the problem?

[X.] Other notes, patches, fixes, workarounds:

I've reported this (or a similar) oops several other times. See:

http://groups.google.com/groups?selm=Pine.LNX.4.10.10106271124500.17066-100000%40galaxy.gkg-com.com

Nobody seems to have any ideas on how to fix / whats causing it.
