Do some console hopping to see if there's anything about
SATA (hde, most likely) and a lost interrupt.  I saw this on a dual opteron,
MSI (k8t master?), one sata disk. Disk performace approached zero.
Gave up, tried gentoo 2004.1. This was no better (default) or OK (smp),
which suggests a workaround might be smp at install time.
