may be true in some situtations but i doubt it is the case in my
situation. my RAM is parity EDO. i get filesystem corruption and i
don't get any parity errors.

when i turn off tagged queueing in the 1.3.77 i no longer get
corruption. i never get corruption under 1.2.13.

i have had my 1.3.77 up for over a week without a single crash when i
turn off TQ. i can even run "make -j" on the kernel sources wo/a
