Not yet, any updates are published in the lkml thread and/or the bug-tracker at kernel.org
Thanks

Have your tried the iiommu=soft or BIOS memhole mapping=disabled workarounds?
Yes seems to make no difference

Cannot believe that. As far as I know nothing has changed in 2.6.19 (the vanilla tree).
Although some things changed in 2.6.20-rcX... (have a look at the lkml thread for more information).
Understand, but that's what I'm seeing. Immediately after building the box simply loading the database via a SQL copy and then doing an integrity check (via vacuumdb) would show page header issues or index problems. After upgrading to 2.6.19 (but also moving the database to two WD 36GB Raptors (SATA 1??)) the problems reduced substantially to the point where I could run the database for 24hrs before the dreaded page header faults hit. Perhaps it was moving the database to the raptors that alleviated the issue more than the kernel upgrade.
