Oops, sorry, my bad.  Didn't realize it was a variant.

My first email to RAIDZONE tech support a few months ago produced no results, but they must know more about this now.  They did not respond with the kernel parameters, but told me to change the eepro100 driver module to a new one based on drivers from Intel.  So I'll try that and see if it fixes my problem. 

However, in case you were still interested in debug information, I provided a dump of the /proc/sys/vm/ directory.  I will have both versions of the kernal modules on the system if you decide to follow this up further, and have any fixes to try.
