Try upgrading to a supported version of the OS, first, then work on
debugging any deadlocks if they still reoccur.
Early 5.x versions were a little rocky. I seem to recall that 5.2
would experience deadlocks against ATA harddrives that would cause a
system lockup, and that a errata release (5.2.1) was quickly put out
to help fix those issues. 6.4 is much more stable by comparison...
