Description of problem:
Sometimes after leaving my machine alone for a while and I come back to it, it's
all locked up.  Fortunately, it's nice enough to leave me a friendly message in
/var/log/messages.  I haven't seen this problem occur when I roll my own kernel
(2.4.19).  Unfortunately, I just got a new fancy shmancy high end system and I
can't seem to get DMA working with my own kernel.  Perhaps you have a newer
patch that makes it work than appears in my own.  Anyway, the bug.  Here's the
message it leaves:
