Description Richard W.M. Jones 2012-02-15 19:49:19 UTC
Ubuntu bug report is here:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/931371

Attaching a completely blank disk image to a virtual machine causes the following stack trace when loading the virtio block driver:

This happens with 3.2.0 and a more recent 3.3 kernel.
Comment 1 Richard W.M. Jones 2012-04-14 15:43:10 UTC
Still happening with 3.4.0-rc2+.

It happens when CONFIG_ACORN_PARTITION_ICS=y (not "ADFS"
as previously stated).  I've updated the summary to
reflect this.

I can reproduce it easily using my own kernel compiled
from Linus's git tree.

I can only reproduce it in an Ubuntu VM (not on Fedora
baremetal) although that is probably just a timing issue.
Comment 2 Richard W.M. Jones 2012-04-14 16:20:00 UTC
More oddness.  I disabled all CONFIG_ACORN_PARTITION settings.

The bug still happens!  But in another partition function.

Comment 3 Dale Amon 2012-04-14 18:24:03 UTC
I have seen the same condition as Richard, using the same applications, but on a raw virtual disk with multiple primary and extended partitions and a functioning MBR using the most recent Precise Pangolin release's Ubuntu kernel. So it is more general than just a blank disk. It fails on a fully functional virtual disk.
Comment 4 Richard W.M. Jones 2012-04-15 16:16:17 UTC
I now believe this is a bug in the Ubuntu qemu package.
