I think this is specific to IDE.  When it happened, I did a quick scan of the log for any other failures and found none.  But this was with a kernel from a linux-2.4.10-pre10-ben0 from 2001.09.21.  A recent linux-2.4.10-ben0-benh from 2001.09.29 seemed to work, but then the bottom fell out in the form of nothing could be found.  Binaries couldn't be run, etc.  (A few days before that, it couldn't mount root and panicked in boot.)

I'll see about testing one from today.  I still have a nasty problem of ADB locking up at random. Sometimes 2 minutes after boot, once almost 24 hours after boot.  Gotten it in the console and X, so I was thinking its either some corruption from the new video drivers (ATY-CT) or maybe some funky DMA race condition.  Would the semaphore proposed in adb.c help this?  PMU interrupts still get thru.  remote login -> procinfo show things still good, battery status still updated (maybe).

Building kernel...
