scsi kernel panics

I recently sent a message to this list regarding kernel panics when doing
disk intensive tasks with either the external scsi bus, or th one through
an Adaptec 2940UW card.  External disks are recognized, but when doing
things like tar zfxv file.tar.gz, the kernel panics.  Anything over
400kb/sec access it seems.  After a reboot following kernel panic, the
kernel often panics again while fscking the external disk.  I have gotten
responses from others confirming what seems to be a very serious bug.  Can
anybody suggest workarounds/ code fixes/ ways to nail down the error any
further?  I don't see how the 2.1 kernels can be declared 2.2 until
something of this serious of a magnitude is fixed.  

My system configuration includes a 2.1.130 kernel, on a 7600/132 with 80
MB of ram, and a 126 MB swap disk.
