Red Hat RHEL, CentOS, OEL 4 & 5 SAN filesystems go readonly !

Apparently there is a problem in the kernel used in Red Hat RHEL 4&5, CentOS 4&5, OEL 4&5, SUSE, Ubuntu 7 and other GNU/Linux distributions that causes EXT2 EXT3 filesystems that are residing on SANs to randomly go read-only !

However if you are using kernel 2.6.18-53.1.21+ or  2.6.22+ you should be ok !
