Once in a while our linux(redhat) is crashing,

Oct 19 18:08:37 vm_redhat_224 kernel: mptscsi: ioc0: attempting task abort! (sc=0000010334447640)

Oct 19 18:08:37 vm_redhat_224 kernel: scsi0 : destination target 0, lun 0

Oct 19 19:15:20 vm_redhat_224 syslogd 1.4.1: restart.

I googled and found out that, problem due to linux kernel but our kernel seems to be fine.

our kernel version is 2.6.9-89.0.20.ELsmp

From my understanding it went to kernel panic because when it try to access the disk and disk should have returned busy status or unavailable status, and then kernel crashed. Do you think that problem with redhat kernel or storage? We are running more than 12 linux boxes running on the box and other boxes are working fine.
