i have just experienced kernel crash/panic when tried to 'sync' disks when
md reconstruction was running. (no logs :/)
system was debian woody 2.4.20-pre7, md raid1 autodetect, 2 scsi disks on
aic7xxx, SMP, filesystem btw was ext3 - not xfs
there goes the strange part... when booting next time md started
reconstructing arrays as it should, but filesystems seemed clean...
then there was a lot of input/output errors etc, i fsck'ed manually, but
system turned out unusable, ALL fs's were corrupted. had to reinstall.
i don't know why all the fs's were corrupted - now testing that system
wonder if those 'Warning - running *really* short on DMA buffers' have
anything todo with this.
