If the instability affects a 300 Mhz UII module (typically
in an U10 or an U5), then it might very well be faulty hardware.
A lot of modules fitting that description suffered serious
cache problems ; the symptoms were transient uncorrectable
failure in the L2 cache, resulting in a kernel panic.
The Ecache problems only affected 400MHz Ultrasparc II modules
as used in Enterprise systems.
300 MHz modules were not affected.
UltrasparcIIi modules as used in the Ultra 5/10 were not affected.
