Description of problem:
After updating to kernel 2.6.11-1_FC3 I got a kernel panic every time the kernel tried to page the first byte to the swap-partition.
Swap lies resides on /dev/md1 which is a level 1 raid device over two parallel ata disks (both master of 1st/2nd channel).
There's no way of getting arround this failure but downgrading to an older version of the kernel. Older versions never crash on my system during paging to swap.
I'm working to reproduce the failure on another machine and will post kernel messages when I have more information.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup swap partition on md-device
2. Upgrade to kernel-2.6.11-1_14_FC3
3. use as much memory it needs to make the kernel page to disk
Actual Results: kernel panic occured
Expected Results: kernel should have paged to disk
