Waiting for SCAT on x86/x64

Another Solaris crash running bonnie++ during testing. I am convinced it is a driver issue, but before I go speaking to the people writing the driver, I want a good convincing stack trace to hand them (and a core file).

I found the core files (shades of Irix past, I like the fact that I get them). Looked for SCAT (Solaris Crash Analysis Tool). 4.1 is out, for Sparc only. 5.0 is imminent. Sadly we will be shipping this unit before SCAT 5 comes out. Unit is shipping with Linux, and is rock solid stable there.

Hopefully it will ship sooner than later and I can force the crash and see what happened. This said, some of the hardware tweaks I did looked like they helped a little.
