Thanks for looking into the problem.
Aas noted in the PR, I have been running the machine in question with
the patch from kern/30531 since mid-2006. It didn't make a
difference, neither for netbsd-3 nor netbsd-4 -- right now, the
machine runs a 4rc1 kernel. I can update the installation by untaring
the base, non-X11 tarballs and avoiding bursts by mounting without
softdep. Anything more data-intensive than that clogs up the
As to thorpej's hint in PR30531, the machine in question has plain
PCI 33 MHz slots, no PCIX. In a newer PCIX equipped board, the
controller would not work at all in RAID1 mode (the machine in
question runs Debian 3.x fine). I may be able to free a machine with
a newer PCIX board for tests in a few weeks, though.
