I googled this error message and it seems a lot of people have seen
lockups with this SAS adapter (without there being any mention of
Munin). Unless you can reproduce this I agree with Stephen that the
kernel (or hardware) is at the prime suspect, and that it happened
during a Munin installation was just random chance.
The fault is definitely with the RAID controller. I had the exact
same problem on 4 Dell PE 2950's, triggered by munin and was able to
solve it by upgrading the firmware on the RAID controllers.
For some reason munin seems to trigger this problem much more easily
than other scenario's. I haven't searched for the exact cause (i.e.
which plugin triggers it).
The best way to fix this is to upgrade to the latest version of the
firmware for your RAID controller, which is a PERC 5/i in my case. Go
to http://support.dell.com/ and search for the latest firmware for
your RAID controller.
Version info for the RAID controller, after upgrading:
