I have four machines running 9.1 here. Three (slightly older ones) work
fine with the new kernel (one Asus Centrino Notebook, one older P4 and
a Duron box). With the fourth one (Athlon64, ASUS K8V) I experience the 
problem. My first thought
was, that it could have something to do with SATA, as the three running ones
don't have it. On the other hand, if You have problems with older machines...
But I agree that it probably has to do with the chipset though.
