6e98b09da931a00bf4e0477d0fa52748bf28fcce OS slackware64-current fully upto date, on an AMD 990fx motherboard with a Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 09). Linux-rt-devel-rc2-rt1 and linux-rt-devel-6.4-rc3-rt2 had same issue, previous linux-rt-devel-6.3.3-rt15 worked with no issue. Hello I suspect this series of commits is causing the full system lock im having when using the r8169 driver with linux-rt-devel-6.4-rc3-rt2. With the driver enabled my system locks up with a few mins of booting and logging into desktop. I have to use power off button and reboot to older kernel. With the r8169 driver blacklisted the kernel works perfectly. My syslog attachment shows the driver errors and after looking at commits I saw the above numbered as being the most likly cause. A member of oftc linux-rt irc channel looked and gave the comment posted below. "tell the driver maintainers they must not enable the irq in the napi poll function" He said it looked like that could be causing the errors and then full system lockup. please contact me if any further information is required. My fix has been blacklist r8169 and use the r8168 driver from relatek with a patch to enable builfing with the 6.4 kernel. Thank you for your time SamW

Please re-test with 6.4-rc4 and linux-next. The following may have fixed the issue you're seeing. d6c36cbc5e53 ("r8169: Use a raw_spinlock_t for the register locks.")

Sorry for the delay, ive only just bee#n able to find out due to waiting for linux-rt-devel to release the next version. linux-rt-devel-6.4-rc5-rt3 which has 6c36cbc5e53 is applied to rt kernel in commit below. https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rt/linux-rt-devel.git/commit/?h=linux-6.4.y-rt&id=d6c36cbc5e533f48bd89a7b5f339bd82b8b4378a And works perfectly thank you very much for your help and the patch. your r9169 driver is so much better than the realtek version. Realteks driver drops out constantly when streaming films and downloading. Ive notified the RT group that your commit has now fixed the driver in the RT kernel. SamW
