This is an important bit: you would not want to report success with
the patch if actually your edit in Default.cfg is what makes the system boot.
Never touched /etc/yaird/Default.cfg.

Your patch seems to have resolved the problem: now i'm writing with the
smp kernel (i like your trick of using smp kernel for testing purposes)
and dmesg report no errors regarding disk/filesystem.
Since i have read other posts regarding problem with DMA (that seems
caused by some hand-made configuration), i have also tested that in my
system it is regularly enabled:
# hdparm -d /dev/hda
using_dma = 1 (on)
Thank you very much Erik.
