I just debugged a new Intel box that failed with stalled IO every few 
days (not even DRBD on it). After disabling IOAT it seem stable now ..

.. before that I had a freezing SuperMicro box with some DMA performance 
options turned on in the bios.. disabling it and it runs stable for half 
a year now.

I don't know what's up these days, every vendor comes up with its own 
half tested technologies. I've never had so much problems with new 
hardware than this year.

Kinda reminds me of the days of early 3D-accelerator cards. But this is 
server hardware, it MUST WORK.
