Downtime caused by ghc6 build causing multiple kernel crashes on mips and mipsel.
Newer kernel which might fix the issue are not available due to a kernel
bug (#466977) since 2.6.18 ... (Running 2.6.17).

To have the buildds catch up faster i as a buildd host was asked to
provide a faster disk subsystem which i did...

So you might devote your time to 

a) Find the cause of the build crash
b) Hunt down the kernel bug in 2.6.24
c) Poke at the buildd admin to move the buildd to the new disk subsys

All those might actually solve the problem and not work around it ..

Thanks for you time ...
