Hardware is in general known to be OK. Dunno about your specific instance

First of all, hook up a serial console so you can capture the output.
Something is crying and we'd like to know what :)

Secondly, the applications you've listed could have been hit by the statfs
change. Are you following the instructions in UPDATING on how to upgrade
*exactly*?  Does rolling back to the previous kernel (kernel.old) get you
working again?

Third, don't rule out hardware failure.  Run the Dell diagnostics to make
sure you haven't toasted a CPU or something.  Check the system
temperature, check the fans, figure out what that blinking yellow light
means, etc.
