Ok, found more information. EL4 sets dir_index for / (cciss/c0d0p6 as we
are installing it). The RedHat provided cciss driver (2.6.14-RH2) has no
problem with that, the latest cciss driver from HP, 2.6.16-6, does.
Turning off dir_index for /, forcing fsck during reboot and everything
is fine.

Ulf.
