I have a bunch of these too and would rather they not die after an
upgrade. Anything I can do to help?

Yes. I've been busy, but what we should do is test hardened 2.6.37-r7
and compare this to vanilla 2.6.37.4. If it happens on both, then we
need to file a bug upstream while I revert the commits in .37 to the way
the pci bus is scanned for cciss.

This is popular hardware and I must solve this not only for both of us,
but others too. I think Chainsaw has like 24 HP DL 385's. I've asked
him to test but he hasn't gotten back to me.

Got it. Any particular type of borkage I should be looking for?

Yes, the cciss array will not be recognized and as a result you get a
panic when root can't be found. Not a very revealing bug. We should
also make sure that I wasn't stupid and missed some new kernel option
that's needed, but I don't think so. I know of 4 commits targetting
cciss which I suspect are the culprits.

I haven't had any trouble on DL360 G2s; working on DL380 G5s next.

When you're done, email me your kernel config files. Thanks
