Re: memory & filesystem corruption under heavy load?

I've had very poor luck with the BSD driver (through 1.7) -- lots of
hangs and crashes and such (I don't remember offhand if I've had
corruption -- usually my system doesn't stay up long enough to make it
interesting). As a result, I'm very reluctant to experiment with this
driver. Apparently a lot of people are finding it works for them, and
they like it much better than Drew's.

I also didn't find any performance gain at all from the 1.7 driver,
and slightly more expensive in CPU time.
