I'm pretty sure RH AS and 2.4.20 isn't seeing those kinds of problems.
It's been passing stress testing and such. I suspect the problem
is someone is rewriting the IDE subsystem and maybe some changes
are needed to adopt cmd649 for that. Khalid would be the right
person to look at this but he's back working on Telco stuff again.

IIRC, cmd649 driver isn't involved with DMA table/DMA mapping and this
stack trace suggests that's still true.

I'll take a whack at it if we can get 2.5.59 to boot/run from our
CVS linux-2.5 (which is merged to 2.5.59).
