Have you tried with any other distros, like CentOS or WBEL, which are
RH Enterprise based (may contain specific patches not in FC)?

Assuming the disks are fsck'd without problem and your swap is not
corrupted, and this problem is reproducible on a *completely*
different system (non-Via), I'd def. take it to linux.kernel if you
haven't already with traces at the ready.
