I'm very late to the party (catching up on my -stable mail), but I'm
curious if these problems also occured under 4.8?

I recently had some issues with a box that has the low-end twe controller.
The big problem was memory, so that was swapped out and all has been well.
I tried going to 4.10 and the box locked up after about 5 minutes of going
into heavy swap.  That happened a few more times and then I reverted back
to 4.8 and it's been fine.  I do have older Maxtor 40GB drives, FWIW.

Just a little datapoint.
