ext3 hang with smp 2.4.18, 2.4.19-pre2 systems



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hi,
I am running a dual Athelon/Tyan MP system. It is a pretty simple minded 
setup, 512 MB ram + a few ide disks. No raid, no scsi, no disk quotas, no 
nfs, no samba. Recently I have been able to hang the system (requiring 
hardware reset, can't  ping, console frozen) at will by doing large compile 
jobs. This has occurred with a stock RedHat 7.3 install with 2.4.18-5 smp 
kernel and with Gentoo 1.2 installed, 2.4.19-gentoo kernel (I believe it is 
an ac kernel) and with 2.4.19-pre2 kernel.

The hangs do not seem to happen if I am not running smp kernels, or when the 
disk is not mounted as ext3 (yes, I assume the problem is just hiding in this 
case!)

I have sometimes seen it hang during bootup.

Any help appreciated.
