    yes, once i found the "buffer write failed" i knew it wasn't a random
    reiserfs oops. just missed it first time, sorry.

    and i think that close timming of oopses was caused by some cron job
    started at this time, the one that does search through entire fs tree...

    sure if there were real errors, but with earlier kernels we get
    this errors in logs but no problems or data loss. strange...

    well i cannot do a lot of reboots on this box, so i guess i just
    try to move promise to another host with another scsi hba and see if
    it works...

    Big thanks for quick reply!
