SubjectRe: 8GB large memory slowdowns (possible mtrr problem)

I am experiencing a very similar problem with a dual 933mhz Hp Netserver with
a Serverworks Motherboard.

I only have 1.2gig of RAM so I use the 4GIG mem option, the server crashed
yesterday after two weeks of uptime with the error BUG at Highmem.c :155 .
It is running Kernel 2.4.3.... as per my other post...

I have seen this problem come up a number of times with as yet no solution. I
initially found a large amount of memory (/etc/slabinfo) used by icache and
dcache entries. As a result a patch was released to fix this but the problem
remains... random freezes for a number of seconds while editing a file,
viewing a directory, etc.. ?? HELP
