I initially missed your message among the plethora of opinions on the
proper use of this list.
I consulted my kernel expert and he suggested you try to examine the
syslog about 2-3 minutes before the first entry you posted. It appears
you're using JFS and it seems that a JFS write by mythbackend was
blocked, possibly because some other process had a lock on the
filesystem. The first message shows that mythbackend had already been
blocked for 2 minutes, so you might find a clue as to the problem 2-3
minutes before this message.
