Config-file-used

Hitting this soft lock issue while running this scenario on 2.6.31-rc7 kernel on SystemX 32 bit on multiple machines.

Scenario:
    - While running cpu controller latency testcase from LTP same time on two containers.

Steps:
1. Compile ltp-full-20090731.tgz on host.
2. Create two container (Used lxc tool (http://sourceforge.net/projects/lxc/lxc-0.6.3.tar.gz) for creating container ) e.g:
    lxc-create -n foo1
    lxc-create -n foo2
On first shell:
    lxc-execute -n foo1 -f /usr/etc/lxc/lxc-macvlan.conf /bin/bash
on Second shell:
    lxc-execute -n foo2 -f /usr/etc/lxc/lxc-macvlan.conf /bin/bash

3. Either you run cpu_latency testcase alone or run "./runltp -f controllers" at same time on both the containers.
4. After testcase execution completes, you can see this message in dmesg.

Expected Result:
    - Should not reproduce soft lock up issue.
- This reproduces 3 times out of 5 tries.

We have been unable to reproduce it on current -tip. Rishi, are you able
to reproduce it on -tip?

thanks,
Comment 3 Rishikesh 2009-09-16 04:56:42 UTC
Dhaval, Can you please boot your system with attached config file ? i am unable to boot -tip kernel on my system with attached config file. If you are able to boot then we can track down the problem easily.

I am not able to create container with lxc on -tip kernel with config 
file attached. As soon as i am executing "lxc-execute ..." it hangs and 
only way to recover is to hard reboot system.
I am not sure about tip but i am able to create the problem pretty 
easily on 2.6.31-rc7 with that config file.

Only the changes i have done in the config file from (2.6.31-rc7) is :
    - Disabled KVM as it was giving me error on -tip kernel.
    - Applied following patch : 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/linux/kernel/1129527

Please let me know if you are able to recreate it on -tip with following 
config.

Comment 6 Rishikesh 2009-09-18 08:27:08 UTC
I am able to reproduce this bug on F12-Alpha on 64 bit machine also. So 
looks like it is a sever bug which need early fix.
For all at same page, i am rewriting the steps once again.

- Create two container using lxc tool. ( used lxc-0.6.3).
    lxc-execute -n foo1 -f /usr/etc/lxc/lxc-macvlan.conf /bin/bash
    lxc-execute -n foo2 -f /usr/etc/lxc/lxc-complex-config /bin/bash

- Compile and run ltp controller testcase inside both container.
- once it runs cpu latency testcase you can observe the trace.

Comment 7 Rishikesh 2009-09-22 10:09:26 UTC
Hi Dhaval,

Today i tried 2 more scenario requested by you on -tip kernel:

1> mount cpu on cgroup & other susbsystems ( ns, cpuset,freezer... 
except cpu) on cgroup1 e.g:.
/root/lxc on /cgroup type cgroup 
(rw,ns,cpuset,freezer,devices,memory,cpuacct,net_cls)
none on /cgroup1 type cgroup (rw,cpu)

    Result: I am able to create container ( no crash after "lxc-execute 
..." command execution).
2> mount cpu,ns on cgroup
[root@x335a ~]# mount
none on /cgroup type cgroup (rw,ns,cpu)
[root@x335a ~]# lxc-execute -n foo2 -f /etc/lxc/lxc-macvlan.conf /bin/bash

    Result : The system crash with following trace once i execute 
lxc-execute command:

x335a.in.ibm.com login: BUG: NMI Watchdog detected LOCKUP on CPU1, ip

Evening i am going to try 3rd scenario:
    - Enable CONFIG_PROVE_LOCKING and then execute above scenario once 
again.

Hope above result will help you to debug further.
