Possible hardware problems? Have you run memtest there?

Was 4KSTACKS enabled in those kernels (I think so)? - XFS
has one known problem with that option when running low on
space (patch fixing that is being tested atm) and I think
the reiserfs folks had some 4k stack issues as well at one
point, so that might be another explanation.

cheers.

Just out of interest, how low is "low space"? I've got a few machines I can't
reboot running XFS+4K stacks; no problems so far but I'd like to sidestep
them if possible.

Well, this is a good reference answer to the question. The machines are all
small systems with only 1GB memory, and plenty of remaining space on the two
partitions. I doubt I'd trigger the logic causing the problem.


Thanks, I'll do that.
