>From what I've seen of this error, it usually looks like MD5 being
stopped. If you look at the top of the error, and go up a line or two,
you'll see a message saying "Power down." After that, you'll see
something about the md5 devices being shut down (after the kernel
believes everything is done). And that's when the error occurs.
