Subjectpreempt-patch cleared of blame
Hi All,

I'd reported a disaster with 2.4.14+preempt,
but I have just reproduced it with 2.4.14
vanilla - (to recap, "dbench 16" hangs the
system hard, it doesn't even respond to
pings, and must be power cycled)

Again, since I am seeing the problem with
2.4.14 vanilla, the preempt patch is NOT at
fault here -

However I am concerned with this latest
twist, as I want linux to be extremely stable,
and this sort of thing is discouraging.

I think there may be a problem with the
compaq smart/2p raid drivers, since
the "do_ida_intr" code keeps showing
up in the oops, and I have not seen a
problem with 2.4.14 on any other system.

I am going to try and reproduce the oops
elsewhere, and hopefuly I will not be able
to - in any event, the oops follows:

Compaq 6500
4XPPRO 200
1.2 GB RAM
compaq "smart" raid controller


ksymoops 2.4.1 on i686 2.4.14. Options used
