Description Ozan Caglayan 2010-01-16 19:21:37 UTC

One of our users reports that he can't properly shutdown the system and he gets a trace on VT.

The system is partly shutted down: The power led is off for example.

[4406.986777] kernel BUG at kernel/time/clockevents.c:262!
[4406.986777] invalid opcode: 0000 [#1] SMP
[4406.986777] last sysfs file: /sysfs/module/ip_tables/initstate

He only reported the first 3 lines, I'll try to make him write down the whole message ASAP.

I suspect the following commit which has been pushed to which modifies kernel/time/clockevents.c:262.

Now I have 3 bug reports and 1 live system on which the bug appears. The 3 bug reporter have all Pentium 4 processors with different clock speeds.

I'm attaching a screenshot which will show the stacktrace.

Note that the commit was also introduced to 2.6.32.y with

The UI faked me, it seems to allow to change the assignee but once I submit it borks, sorry.
Comment 4 Simon Munton 2010-01-17 10:23:58 UTC
I am also getting this problem with kernel version It doesn't always happen on poweroff, and every time I've enabled the serial console to try and capture the trace, the problem hasn't occurred.
I'll add a screenshot of the trace.

Comment 6 Ozan Caglayan 2010-01-17 15:17:41 UTC
Yes this is the same stacktrace. By the way reverting the commit I've mentioned above fixed the problem on 4 different systems all with Pentium 4 processors.
