10gR2, 11gR1 Clusterware resources can crash when  CheckResource fails with error 139 (SIGSEGV).
You may find many Clusterware resources (like VIP, Listener, Instances, Services, etc) status as OFFLINE when looking at output of command: crs_stat -t.
Starting them all will work fine until this issue is hit again.

crsd.log  shows:
