SubjectKernel-2.4.17pre8 & invalidate: busy buffer

Currently while running on a RedHat Linux 7.2 box with kernel-
2.4.17pre8, whenever I run the "hdparm -t /dev/sda3" command, the
following error message will appear around 33+ times
in /var/log/messages as well as "dmesg" .

invalidate: busy buffer

The machine in question is a Dell PowerEdge 2550 with an AACRAID
controller and 2 x 18GB HDs in RAID-1 configuration and /dev/sda3 being
mount as / .

Is this a bug in the kernel or is it caused by some hardware faults?

Does anyone have any solution or workaround to this problem?

Many thanks in advance for any assistance!
