Yeah, I think we need to replace the disc in ecosse.
(and/or check the cabling for the disc)
After some builds it starts to hit ATA bus resets, and everything slows
down to a crawl...
But I cant get smart to log any failures, not even after a full test or
after runninng badblocks on the disk. :/
Only thing worth noting is that badblocks took over one week to finish,
so I'd say that's another sign of something wrong.
And after discussing with people on LKML, they all suggested failing hw
And I'd like to suggest we do build the new box with 2 disks, so
basesystem would go on raid 1, and either stick the builds on raid0 for
improved build performance, or on two single disks splitting buildbots
between them to improve concurrent io
