I have not seen these problems.

I have an Ultra 5,
cpu0: Sun Microsystems UltraSparc-IIi Processor (300.00 MHz CPU)
and have been tracking "head" (which puts me at 5.2-BETA right
now).  I generally update it about once every three weeks (which
is why I am not at 5.2-RC yet...).

I am running an almost-exactly-GENERIC kernel.  My system stays
up until I reboot for an upgrade, or until we have any kind of
power-flicker here (my sparc machine is not on a UPS).
