OK, this patch seems to have fixed the problem (or at least covered up
the real problem that may lie underneath). We've been back up almost
48 hours since the patch has been applied (on both RedHat 2.2.14 and
stock 2.2.16 kernels).
Thanks for your help. Hopefully we won't have bigger problems down
the line :-)
Alan, will this patch make it into 2.2.17?
