Description Peter Teoh 2011-04-14 01:29:10 UTC
The system - while in use - can suddenly hanged itself - display no change, mouse/keyboard not responsive, and even going into the system via ssh is impossible.   The "A" yellow alert signal light on my Lenovo R400 laptop will then start to blink.

Upon reboot the trace is this:

Apr 14 09:02:26 tteikhua-laptop kernel: [ 2132.938702] [drm] capturing error event; look for more information in /debug/dri/0/i915_error_state
Apr 14 09:08:18 tteikhua-laptop syslogd 1.5.0#5ubuntu3: restart.
Apr 14 09:08:18 tteikhua-laptop kernel: Inspecting /boot/System.map-2.6.39-rc3+
Apr 14 09:08:18 tteikhua-laptop kernel: Cannot find map file.
Apr 14 09:08:18 tteikhua-laptop kernel: Loaded 69004 symbols from 47 modules.

And the funny thing is if I mount debugfs the /debug directory, I can see there is no error in the i915_error_state output, but when it hanged, being non-responsive to any form of input, there is no way to query the error state - even via ssh.

The previous version of 2.6.38-rc2+ has been wonderful for me, perfectly running system - except for some problem with NFS shutting down, but the present version - linus git-tree updated as of yesterday is not working.

Thanks.

Last night (19 Apr 2011) I sync-ed with linus git tree, and the system still hanged - perhaps after about one hour of usage, and this hangup repeats several times after reboot.

It'd be great if you could bisect between -rc2 and -rc3+ to find the problem commit. Otherwise, there's too little information here to be of much use.
