The system takes over

So what's going on here?

While doing a large rsync the system gets slower and slower until it is
unusable. According to top, all the processors are doing around 98%
system time.

This is a spanking new PE6600 with 16G of RAM, 4 CPUs. It has some S/W
Raid 1 and 5 with RH 8.0 + updates installed.

The kernel is:

# uname -a
Linux alan.une.edu.au 2.4.18-18.8.0bigmem #1 SMP Wed Nov 13 22:49:22 EST
2002 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I'm avoiding the tg3 network driver for the moment, as I get the
rock-solid-hang if I use that:

# cat /etc/modules.conf 
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
alias eth0 bcm5700
alias eth1 bcm5700
alias scsi_hostadapter aic7xxx
alias usb-controller usb-ohci

Here is the last top that the system was able to put out. Note the % in
system time. The crond jobs are just jobs that didn't complete because
the system is so slow.

I also have the contents of /proc/slabinfo before and after. But I'll
