We're looking into doing the git-bisect now.
Comment 1 Anthony Basile 2011-05-16 23:38:38 UTC
Bisecting shows that reverting 737a3bb9416ce2a7c7a4170852473a4fcc9c67e8 fixed the problem.  The patch is in comment 28 of the Gentoo bug report.
Comment 2 Andrew Morton 2011-05-18 21:52:58 UTC
OK, this is a bit strange.

I can see that Greg's 737a3bb9416ce2a7c7a4170852473a4fcc9 would cause radeon_cp_init() to crash when it is called via ioctl.  It calls platform_device_register_resndata(), but platform_device_register_resndata() got unloaded from kernel memory.

But that will only happen if CONFIG_MODULES=n, and in the config attached to the gentto report, CONFIG_MODULES=y.  So platform_device_register_resndata() won't have been unloaded!

Still, we should revert 737a3bb9416ce2a7c7a4170852473a4fcc9, as its assumptions are wrong in this case.
Comment 3 Stratos Psomadakis 2011-05-18 22:55:59 UTC
Actually, radeon_cp_init() crashed only with later kernel configurations which had CONFIG_MODULES=n. And that's because of the commit 737a3b.

Previous configuration had CONFIG_MODULES=y, but with 2.6.36 kernels, and the bug/dmesg output was different I think. Probably it was a different, 2.6.36-related bug, which was fixed in later kernel releases.
Comment 4 Andrew Morton 2011-05-18 22:58:47 UTC
OK, thanks.  Mystery solved.
Comment 5 Jérôme Glisse 2011-05-19 14:05:02 UTC
So is the bug still revealent ? If so what is the bt now ?
Comment 6 Stratos Psomadakis 2011-05-19 18:15:57 UTC
The only problem now seems to be with commit 737a3b, which should be reverted, as it breaks radeon with a non-modular kernel (because of __init_or_module).
Comment 7 Florian Mickler 2011-07-05 10:31:32 UTC
A patch referencing this bug report has been merged in Linux v3.0-rc6:

    drivers/base/platform.c: don't mark platform_device_register_resndata() as __init_or_module
