*Description :
OK, so this one is repeatable now, and it looks like an
interraction between the ramdisk driver and XFS.

        2 way SMP 1400 with 1Gb memory, 
        SCSI disk. 
        t-o-t kernel, kio _not_ enabled.

        mkfs -t xfs -f /dev/sdc5

The following file(s) were checked into:

linux/drivers/block/rd.c - 1.22
        - SMP deadlock fix from Neil Brown <neilb@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
          (to be submitted for inclusion in kernel)

This fixes the problem, but I'll close this once it gets posted
to the kernel list.
