1) The Sun ran reliably for many months up until the kernel update.
2) Both X4100 and R510 are crashing regularly since the kernel upgrade
was applied to both hosts on successive days.

The Dell is actually halting with a "kernel panic - not syncing: nmi
watchdog" on the console and has needed a power cycle each time it has
crashed. So, I'm not ruling out hardware problems.
