Rather curiously, I had exactly the same issue with the same model drive
this past weekend. Debian-patched 2.6.26 kernel, however, though also with
XFS (on top of md/LVM). Interestingly, there were no SMART errors and a
full SMART test passed. The error was triggered by doing a cvs update on my
working copy of the NetBSD source tree - not a large copy, but a
disk-intensive activity.
