Copy boatloads of stuff to filesystem, gcc-2.6.3 for example. B^).
Try, just TRY, to read a file with more or cp or anything and
our fav. -current becomes hung like ein rhino-saucerous... B^(.
It's a hard hang to DDB is of no use.
Any ideas why a 4k filesystem might lock things up so tight?
Seagate 1G in sync mode but I doubt that matters.
Anyone seen or heard of this before. I seem to remember a REALLY
old 7xx series kernel having the same problems but a 1.0 kernel
seemed to have handled it OK.
