Description of problem:
Since I added the Adaptec ATA RAID 2400A to the computer, I am getting kernel
panics and some mild FS corruption (an e2fsck will recover the data).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot
2. Wait
3. Kernel panics after about 24 hours.

Additional info:

I have an Adaptec ATA RAID 2400A controller with two 120GB Maxtor drives in
Promise Super Swap chassis configured as a RAID-1 array. The file system (/home)
on the array is ext3fs and is served out by NFS.

The kernel is from the Red Hat 2.4.9-31 RPM. The machine has two 400MHz Pentium
II processors, but I am running the uniprocessor kernel because the SMP kernel
completely hangs (not even magic sysrq can save me) when it panics.

The machine has 576MB of RAM and 1152MB of swap. The swap (and the root file
system) is on a separate, plain old IDE drive.

Here is some relevant text from dmesg:
