Bug#290418: kernel-image-2.6.5-1-686-smp: I have an SATA disc driven by this kernel which has acquired a large number of fsck errors

Package: kernel-image-2.6.5-1-686-smp
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

The system is an Intel 865 MB with video and networking. I have three 
PATA and one SATA disc. Despite the system not having had power fails or 
any hardware failures, the SATA disc has become badly corrupted, with 
serious loss of data, such that fsck reported it needed to be run 
manually. Running fsck manually reported several hundred errors, and has 
resulted in around 40 files and at least one directory in lost+found. 
Other symptoms noticed include very slow ls performance if the disc is 
otherwise in use (order of seconds if not minutes to complete), and data 
which appears to change after it has supposedly been written. I would 
like to move to a later kernel, however, 2.6.8 does not even boot on 
this hardware, which appears to be a known bug.
