I got kernel 2.4.5 (after 2.4.3 did evil things, 2.4.4 failed to
compile..) and tried to get my raid array to work.
But it didn't.
mkfs worked ok, but when I tried to mount the partition, mount
segfaulted and the log file had this:
Jun 5 22:49:02 fozzie kernel: CIA machine check: vector=0x670 pc=0xfffffc00004b508c code=0x98
Jun 5 22:49:02 fozzie kernel: machine check type: processor detected hard error
fffffc00004b4de0 T raid1_end_request
fffffc00004b4f00 t raid1_read_balance
fffffc00004b5100 t raid1_make_request
fffffc00004b5540 t raid1_status
So, I think something dies in raid1_read_balance, whatever that is.
