Please disregard the whole iSCSI thing, iSCSI works perfectly!
I forgot I had a firewall test running simultaneously, I'm just stupid... let's not even talk about it :-(

The 3ware thing is real though, but I guess it's some kind of 3ware bug. Difficult to say for sure until I can get my hands on another controller. Strange thing only one MD array has that problem even though there are other similar MD raid5 arrays on the same controller and other identical controllers. It can't be a damaged disk because writes get stuck cyclically on all 6 drives of that array. Even cables can't be: they are cables for 4 drives each, and 2 drives are together with other 2 drives on another MD array which doesn't show the problem.

Is there any way to tell Linux to poll a PCI device even if it hasn't received an interrupt from it? If I could poll the controller every, say, 0.2 sec I could test if the problem goes away.

Thank you
