I do not know why but the freeze occurs only when displaying "invalid
packet size xxx; dropping". When I tried "vmstat 1" on the serial
console and fetching a large file via ftp at the same time
with 12GB RAM configuration, the freeze did not occur.
Once "hme0: too may errors; not reporting any more" is displayed,
the box seems to work fine and I can check out the ports tree via NFS
I tried to comment out the HME_WHINE line of hme_read() in if_hme.c,
and it seems to make the box work fine so far.
Kris, could you try again? I think this is not a disk problem.
