Description kenorb 2012-09-20 07:56:09 UTC
After pressing SysRq+J, kernel dumping the following error:
kernel: [160192.060834] Emergency Thaw on sda4
endless until the machine will die.
After 47,5mln of records and 4,5GB of log (around 80000 lines per second) within 12 minutes I had to do hard reboot.

My machine:
HP Compaq 8100 Elite
