Custom kernels causing Promise ATA RAID to go down.

For a couple of weeks now I've been having problems with my custom kernel
crashing the system. I've re-cvsup'd and nuked /usr/obj and rebuild worlds
and kernels alike, but the only solution is to boot with a generic
kernel....which smurfs me to tears
The problem is that my kernel keeps causing ATA DMA READ/WRITE errors and then
eventually causing my RAID array to go down, thus needing a deletation and
re-definition thru the BIOS. Plus uncountable fsck run thru. I've not been
able to catch any of the error messages but I did see a error reference to a
ffs/softupdate source code file.
I don't know how to capture and store the output. As the system just basicly
hangs and freezes the keyboard. Most of the time I've been X, which can only
be solved with a hard reboot.
Running a GENERIC kernel is (with debuging things removed) is so slow. X/KDE
performs so poorly now.
My dmesg -v cane be found here:
Custom kernel conf:
Thanks in advance.
