I tried this patch (against a stock 2.6.23), and it did not work for
me.  Not only did I/O to the effected RAID5 & XFS partition stop, but
also I/O to all other disks.  I was not able to capture any debugging
information, but I should be able to do that tomorrow when I can hook
a serial console to the machine.

That can't be good! This is worrisome because Joel is giddy with joy because it fixes his iSCSI problems. I was going to try it with nbd, but perhaps I'll wait a week or so and see if others have more information. Applying patches before a holiday weekend is a good way to avoid time off. :-(

I'm not sure if my problem is identical to these others, as mine only
seems to manifest with RAID5+XFS.  The RAID rebuilds with no problem,
and I've not had any problems with RAID5+ext3.

Hopefully it's not the raid which is the issue.
