DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2009-11
ever since the last time I had CRC problems on my router box, I've
developed the habit of doing a daily 'hammer -f /dev/ad4s1d show |& grep
"^B"' to see if any new errors crept up, and today I found:
yoyodyne# hammer -f /dev/ad4s1d show |& grep "^B"
B dataoff=a00000714d120000/65536 crc=7e4f7545
B dataoff=a000007171380000/65536 crc=616b1cc1
Console log for the recent days is:

smartctl -a /dev/ad4 doesn't report any problems.
The box is running 2.4.1 (v18.104.22.168.g93de5-RELEASE, to be specific).
So my question is: What are my next steps in order to help resolve this
issue? Is there any way to get e.g. to the names of the files affected
by this problem from the data which is output by 'hammer show'?
So far the only thing I've done is to disable nightly hammer cleanup
because DragonFly, upon encountering a CRC error, will unfortunately
simply drop to the debugger without panicing, so this doesn't get caught
by DDB_UNATTENDED as far as I can tell (Matt, are there any plans to
change this unpleasant behavior?). And I won't be near that box until
