Description of problem:
Machine hard locks up with an oops. The oops does not get written to
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Can't reliably reproduce. It seems to be random.
Sorry about the incomplete oops, these were copied by hand
by hand from the console in a hurry. The machine locked up
twice. The mouse seemed to still work on the first lockup,
but I couldn't change consoles to see the oops. The second
time a few minutes later this appeared on the console and the
machine was locked up. I have since backed down to 2.4.18-14smp
to see if this will work. I'll try to get a complete one if it
happens with the slightly older kernel.
EIP is at show_stack [kernel] 0x4b (2.4.18-18.8.0smp)
... missed a few lines - in a hurry ...

The same machine has now been running 19 days without a problem
using a previous 2.4.18-14smp kernel. It appears that the
newer errata kernel is unstable. BTW, the errata kernel has a
newer version of the aacraid driver (may or may not be related).
