Subjectsata io freeze, 2.6.18 and also 2.6.24

I've been having consistent hard system freezes for a
long time, every 2 days or so, and finally decided to
move to the most recent stable kernel. Unfortunatelly
that didn't fix it. The freezes seem to be io-related;
they started since I moved my drive to sata. They seem
to happen mostly when there's an io-intensive operation,
like extracting a big archive; a reboot is needed.

Nothing ever shows up in the logs.

I'm using the following drive:

ATA device, with non-removable media
Model Number: MAXTOR STM3160215AS
Serial Number: 6RA2TMJ4
Firmware Revision: 3.AAD

Linux localhost #4 SMP Fri Mar 28 14:51:50 BRT 2008 i686 GNU/Linux

This is a 2-processor CPU:

# cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor : 0
vendor_id : GenuineIntel
cpu family : 15
model : 4
model name : Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz
stepping : 9
cpu MHz : 3013.697
cache size : 1024 KB

(same goes for processor : 1)
