Well I know how I did my conversions of filesystems before, but it is
more tricky (but takes less time).
I dropped one disk out of the raid, created a new degraded raid with it,
and made a filesystem on it, copied the data with cp -ax from the
current filesystem to the new one, then rebooted to the new filesystem
and added the old filesystem raid drive to the new raid.
It might be simpler to just reinstall though using whatever method you
used before. You should be able to reuse the partition setup from
before, and just tell it to reassemble the raids and then pick the
filesystem and mount points again.
Of courses there is a small chance that you are dealing with a hardware
problem such as memory or cpu or perhaps the disk (although with a raid
a disk error shouldn't behave as you are seeing).
