Description of problem:
Under heavy load the kernel driver for qlogic's qla 2100 spits out many
messages which makes me VERY uneasy. Under 2.2.19-6.2.1 it haven't crashed
yet, under 2.2.17-14 it even rebooted server with data corruption (it
happend during night backup, without further messages/dumps, sorry).
Hardware is Dell PowerEdge 8450, 4 Xeons, 4G RAM, PowerVault 650F. I'm
attaching part of /var/log/messages to this report.
Steps to Reproduce:
In our case, it happens while backing up Interbase's database with gbak, 2-
3 files, 2 GB each.

Does it help if you boot with the "noapic" option at the lilo prompt ?
Seems like it helped. We'll try some stress-testing and then probably close
this report. Thanks for the tip!
