Subjectbio too big device
I frequently receive this message in my syslog, apparently 
whenever there are periods of significant write activity:

bio too big device ide0(3,7) (256 > 255)
bio too big device ide1(22,6) (256 > 255)

It's worth noting that on this system I have had ongoing trouble
with system stability during write activity as well, using a
wide variety of 2.5.x kernels, even though at the time of this
symptom things are apparently running fine.

Filesystems are all ext3 on top soft raid0 devices. This happens
to be 2.5.64, but it has been happening for at least the last
5-6 versions.

Ideas? Any further debugging output I can provide?
