Over in Gentoo-land, we've had a lot of problems with what appear to be
SCSI related lockups in 2.6.  In particular the SYMBIOS controllers
present in systems like the Ultra 60 and Netra 140x seem to be very good
at locking up on short notice.  We've been working with David Miller on
it, but so far no luck on pinpointing it exactly.
