SubjectRe: 2.4 kernels - "attempt to access beyond end of device"

To add to my report about troubles with disk activity on a system with
PDC20265 IDE controller (this is on Asus AV7 mobo, BTW) I tried the
same experiments with 2.2.19pre14 patched with ide patches to get a
support for Promise.

I got similar results - i.e. problems after some 130-150 megabytes
was copied. On different occasions I got things like that:

file_cluster badly computed!!! 0 <> 536870911
file_cluster badly computed!!! 1 <> 0

practically immediately and followed by a period of a lively disk
activity and a crash.

Whoops: end_buffer_io_async: b_count != 1 on async io.

after which 'cp' process hanged in a "D" state.

attempt to access beyond end of device
21:01: rw=0, want=537238629, limit=4506201
dev 21:01 blksize=512 blocknr=1074477258 sector=1074477258 size=512 count=1
...
(and more of these) terminated with oops decoded below.

To take 'vfat' out of picture I also tried 'cp' from ext2 partitions
(I had to collect number of things as I do not have enough of data on
this system yet) to an ext2 partition while using 2.4.2-ac5. This resulted
in:

EXT2-fs error (device ide3(34,9)): ext2_readdir: bad entry in

punctuated by oops.
Here is a decoded oops from 2.2.19pre14

Does this rings a bell with anybody? I cannot exclude here a faulty
hardware, but it is not overclocked in any way, or BIOS (Award ACPI BIOS
1005C - but this should not matter once I booted - right?).
