Hi,

I have reported getting these messages on 2.6.26:

http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=121796211813099&w=2

In addition to the system mentioned in that posting, I have just
reproduced it by stress testing a system with 2 Opteron processors,
2GB of RAM and 2 SATA disks.

Backing out this patch seems to help:

cfq-iosched: tighten queue request overlap condition

For tagged devices, allow overlap of requests if the idle window
isn't enabled on the current active queue.
