 works fine (I tried with the different components of the RAID).
 I also tried to reproduce it on a athlonx2 with 2 SATA drives, no luck.
 other factors that may be relevant:
 - when this happens a background parity rewrite is running
 - there may be hardware issues with drives (like command timeouts),
   so there may be aborted transfers/I/O errors reported to the raidframe 
 What I could do it try let it rebuild parity on the UP kernel, and reboot
 to the SMP kernel after.
