timeout waiting for DMA

I'm running kernel 2.4.2 on an SGI 1100 (dual PIIIs) with a Serverworks
III LE based motherboard. The disk is a Seagate ST330630A. The disk has
DMA enabled at boot time :

hda: ST330630A, ATA DISK drive
hda: 59777640 sectors (30606 MB) w/2048KiB Cache, CHS=3720/255/63, UDMA(33)

(also verified using hdparm)

but after a while (eg partway through running bonnie with a 1GB file) I
get the following errors:

Feb 24 22:51:02 nash2 kernel: hda: timeout waiting for DMA
Feb 24 22:51:02 nash2 kernel: ide_dmaproc: chipset supported ide_dma_timeout
func only: 14
Feb 24 22:51:02 nash2 kernel: hda: irq timeout: status=0x58 { DriveReady
SeekComplete DataRequest }
<repeats a few times>
Feb 24 22:51:32 nash2 kernel: hda: DMA disabled

I can reenable DMA without any problems, but after some additional disk
activity (eg running bonnie again), the error occurs again.

Additional information on my hardware is given below. Any suggestions on
how this can be resolved?
