Our situation is similar but may be different in the end.  When we have
trouble we get messages on the console saying it can't talk the SCSI
devices.  Nothing can read or write to the disks.  But the system will
happily, for example, serve web pages that are already in RAM.

Our test machine crashed again today.  This time it was running 2.6.11 with
acpi=no.  I'm trying 2.6.10-ac11 with acpi=no now.
