 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.
