Honestly, nothing annoys me more than a post (or phone call, face-to-face, etc) where someone says, 'It's broken' and nothing else. Being a Sysadmin for as long as I have this is my one pet peeve.

Well you are firing on a lot of cylinders there the only thin difference is are you running a kernel from the last 6-8 weeks or so? I guess not on those unrebooted Opterons.

And I guess I know there is libata and kernelside work to do with ATA in kernels around that time. But it can as easily, well, more easily, be a powersupply problem in my case.
