Bug#404486: intermittent boot failures


I am observing similar symptoms when booting etch 
(linux-image-2.6.18-3-686_2.6.18-7) on an Asus P4B533 motherboard. 
With an ext2 root filesystem on an PATA disk, the boot process 
fails sometimes due to errors while loading kernel modules just 
after the initramfs has switched the root filesystem to the PATA 
disk partition.

With a ReiserFS root filesystem, the boot process fails sometimes 
because the filesystem check detects errors before the fs is 
actually mounted.

In both cases, the machine reboots without any problem after a power 
cycle, hence the filesytem is not really corrupted.

This problem never happened when the machine was running an earlier 
version of the kernel in etch (one of 2.6.16 or 2.6.17, I can't say 
for sure).
