Could you build a kernel with kdb enabled and dump the call
stack ("bt" command) when the system hangs?  That would give
us a better idea as to whether or not your hang is related to
XFS, and a better starting point for debugging.

It would also probably be worthwhile moving up to the current
development tree which is 2.4.7-pre6 based so that everyone is
looking at the same code when you do extract some debug info.
