Make sure you are not running CONFIG_HIGHMEM64G. I believe there
is some kind of memory corruption problem under highmem=64g on x86 with
big ramdisks. I use a ~900kB initial ramdisk that expands to ~2.2MB.

With CONFIG_HIGHMEM4G or CONFIG_NOHIGHMEM, the problem disappears
for me. I am writing this email under 2.5.41 with CONFIG_HIGHMEM4G and
IDE as a module (with a patch that I posted to lkml).
