Description Hussam Al-Tayeb 2011-05-23 08:13:28 UTC
After upgrading to kernel 2.6.39, I started having soft lockups due to disk activity. anything more that low disk activity would cause a problem in an application A.
dmesg would spit out something like [ 1920.307498] INFO: task java:25665 blocked for more than 120 seconds.
[ 1920.307499] "echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/hung_task_timeout_secs" disables this message.

Application A would then stop being able to read/write from disk. Other running applications would still be able to read/write fine to the disk.
I could even copy the data application A to another folder or delete it.
This isn't a hard lockup and I could still continue to use the computer but then it'll hang at shutdown.
At first I thought the disk (which I bought 12 days ago) is bad so I ran badblocks -vs and didn't find a single bad block. I ran smartctl long test and the disk is fine. It started to feel like some ext4 regression.

I downgraded to kernel 2.6.38.6 and performed a disk intensive action which was recompiling libreoffice. This worked without a problem.
I also tried the application A which was giving problems earlier but I couldn't see a problem again. So I compiled libreoffice again to check and didn't have lockups.

I forgot to mention. all paritions apart from swap and /boot and encrypted with LuKs.

I'll mark this as a regression.

It appears that we forgot to release mmap_sem.

This involves dm-crypt, correct?

I see quite a lot of dm-crypt related bug reports float past.  But
there have been very few changes in dm-crypt recently, and something
broke in 2.6.39...

YEs, 
lsmod | grep dm_crypt
dm_crypt               12887  2 
dm_mod                 55464  5 dm_crypt

Still no lockups since downgrading to 2.6.38.6 which was a few hours before I 
filed the bug report.
I could reinstall 2.6.39 if there is anything you would like me to test.

Thanks.

CONFIG_PROVE_LOCKING=y would be useful, if you didn't already have it
set.

Also after the kernel has failed, kill everything off and do a `ps aux'
and look for any other tasks which are stuck in "D" state.  Backtraces
for any such processes can be obtained with "echo w >
/proc/sysrq-trigger".

Actually it was definitely more than a few hours before filing the bug report. I 
did recompile libreoffice twice as a 'stress test' under kernel 2.6.38.6

I'm using kernel 2.6.39 now and waiting for the lockup to happen again.

It happened again. also while doing a test build of libreoffice (very disk 
intensive stuff). 
The build process seems frozen. I did cat /var/log/kernel.log and run 
/bin/dmesg but didn't find any error.

so I typed init s then 
echo w > /proc/sysrq-trigger

and then I typed ps aux | grep D

root        23  0.0  0.0      0     0 ?        DN   May25   0:06 [khugepaged]
root      8673  0.0  0.0   4412   832 pts/2    S+   08:02   0:00 grep D

then I typed exit and I found the following in my kernel.log
