Thanks Scott. I tried to compile kernel several different way, tried 
different RAM configurations and no result. With 8GB
file system gets corrupted and after several boot file system becomes in 
unusable state.
Scott, when ips driver will be fixed? Will it be ready when 5.3 release 
comes out?
Please let me know. I'm ready to test.
