I fairly certain its the Qlogic driver for the QLA2200 HBA (driver
version 4.27b (I've tried but so far failed to get the more recent
5.38.9 driver to work).

The only other possibility (well the only other driver not in the
base/XFS kernel) is an intel driver for a e1000 PRO Gigabit Ethernet
card (version 3.6.8).
