There's a bug in the aacraid driver which was finally understood yesterday.
We're trying to make sure it's actually fixed.  It seems to only happen on
systems with >1GB RAM.  A short term solution should be to append 'mem=900M'
or thereabouts when you boot, which should prevent high memory access by the
driver which is what's breaking.  Soon as we're sure we've got this bug
completely fixed we'll post another announcement to these lists.
