Re: [Xen-devel] Network stops responding after some time

Thanks for your response. 

I followed your suggestion. I waited for the network to come down and then I 
ran a badblocks. The test took a while to run but it didn't crash the system. I 
tried this several times hoping it would crash the system but it never did.
I attached a good harddrive to hdb, and looking at dmesg, it also reported irq 
timeouts just like hda and hdc.

So its strange that the system, in spite its quirkyness, is still stable. Any 
ideas what might be the culprit?
