    The stack issues were a major problem in the 5.3x series driver. I
    believe, I can check tomorrow, 5.38.9 (the driver Dell distributes)
    contains fixes for the stack clobbering -- qla2x00-rh1-3 also contain
    the fixes.

    IAC, I believe the support tech working with MasterLee had asked
    for additional information regarding the configuration as well as
    some basic logs. Ideally we'd like to setup a similiar configuration
    in house and see what's happening...
