Or some of the hardware is failing. If you ran 2.2 kernels before you may be in for a suprise. 2.4 pushes harder against the hardware which will show on flaky or not 100 percent hardware.

Make sure you uncomment the CC = $(CROSS_COMPILE)kgcc line in Makefile to make sure you are using the right compiler.
People have reported that a kernel built with the standard gcc on rh7.x can fail in unexpected yet subtle ways. Thinks like fs corruption and crashes after trying to use that corrupt data.
Run a xfs_repair on your fs to see if it's still in one piece.
xfs_repair -n can be run on a mounted filesystem to see if it wants to fix something.
