Let me guess, you have a pentium 1 or a k6 in that one machine and compile
your kernel with GCC 3.2?
2.4.* kernels MUST be compiled with GCC 2.95 or some bits get misplaced and
you end up with a kernel that garbles files when writing with O_DIRECT,
regardless of the filesystem used. It's best to always use GCC 2.95 anyway:
who knows what else may get miscompiled?
