These IBM labelled disks are manufactured by Seagate and Fujitsu. The
tags parameters were different: 64 for Seagate disks and 128 for
Fujitsu disks. When I set the both values to 64 the error (or
informational?) messages from the ahd driver disappeared. 

The sad thing is that the system still crashes. The attached file
contains the logs from the latest crash and the trace from the kernel

Should I start to think that it's vinum that's causing the crash?
