   Hi folks!

   I've been working on a new machine last night and today.  It's an 
AS4100 with four 466MHz 21164A procs and 1GB of RAM, an ISP1020 SCSI 
host adapter connected to the system disk, and an FC-AL array hanging 
off a QLA-2100 HBA.  I'm running a GENERIC.MP kernel with Essential 
HIPPI support added.

   The basic system installed fine (and *very* quickly!) but now I'm 
trying to untar a big pile of stuff (tar file on the FC-AL array, 
untarring to an empty filesystem on the system disk on the ISP1020) and 
am seeing periodic hard hangs...the only thing I've been able to do is 
hit reset.

   Has anyone else seen this?  I'm about to boot a non-MP kernel to see 
if the behavior changes.
