Oooh, that's nasty.  I don't really know anything about the VIA chipset,
but what happens if you config off DMA with hdparm on /dev/hda?  Also, I
wonder if the chipset has an aperture issue: if you boot with "mem=63m"
(instead of 64m) or "mem=60m" (to account for 4 MB page tables) do you get
the same crashes?
