Description Yauhen Kharuzhy 2006-11-30 07:46:41 UTC
Most recent kernel where this bug did *NOT* occur:
unknown (works good with UP 2.6.16 kernel)

Distribution: Debian (vanilla kernel sources)

It's annoying for me, because Debian maintainers do not build UP kernel images.


Steps to reproduce:
1) build SMP kernel with ACPI (see config below).
2) run kernel on UP system and load module processor.ko

Comment 2 ykzhao 2007-10-17 01:41:08 UTC
Hi, Yauhen 
Can the system work well ?
Comment 3 Yauhen Kharuzhy 2007-10-17 03:45:59 UTC
Yes, kernels >= 2.6.21 work well.
Comment 4 Sam Liddicott 2007-10-20 05:56:17 UTC
2.6.22, 2.6.23 both hang for me a short while after processor.ko loads.
They hang so tightly that even alt-sysreq-* fail to do anything.

Many details are posted here:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/linux/+bug/144030

The easiest way to reproduce the hang on-demand is to:
insmod /somewhere-else/processor.ko
/etc/init.d/gdm start
Comment 5 Sam Liddicott 2007-10-20 07:02:08 UTC
BTW I forgot to mention this occurs with SMP or UP kernels on a UP machine.
and in fact while in an X session, insmod processor.ko will hang the system right away.
Comment 6 Venkatesh Pallipadi 2007-11-20 14:53:19 UTC
Can you try following two boot options and let me know if any helps
- "max_cstate=1"
- "max_cstate=2"

Also, is 2.6.16 last known kernel that did not have the problem? Can you give dmesg with that kernel (with ACPI_PROCESSOR loaded).

Comment 7 Venkatesh Pallipadi 2007-11-20 14:54:49 UTC
Also attach acpidump output from your system please.
(in latest pmtools here - http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/lenb/acpi/utils/ )

acpidump from acer 9300 laptop

Here's the latest acpidump of my acer 9300 laptop that also hangs soon after boot
Comment 9 Sam Liddicott 2008-01-09 13:10:32 UTC
with max_cstate=1 or max_cstate=2 ubuntu still hangs (no alt-sysreq) as soon as GDM starts.

dmesg of boot on 2.6.20 kernel (from ubuntu fesity) which doesn't hang

The ubuntu feisty fawn kernel does not hang; here is a dmesg from that kernel.

dmesg (without noacpi !!) for 2.6.20 (from ubuntu feisty) which doesn't hang

this time I booted the fesity kernel without noacpi

dmesg for 2.6.22 without noacpi 

This dmesg is the hanging kernel, before it hung.
(modprobe processor.ko from an X session is a sure way to hang it.
It takes a while to hang without X.)
Comment 13 Sam Liddicott 2008-01-12 08:51:22 UTC
I'm not getting a problem with 2.6.24-3 s part of Ubuntu Hardy Heron alpha 3.
Sadly the upgrade failed an I had to fresh install making debuging the previous kernel sort of difficult... however I will make a fresh feisty->gutsy installation to debug this further if you want.

Otherwise... it seems "fixed" in 2.6.24
Comment 14 Sam Liddicott 2008-03-14 01:35:47 UTC
I think this has come back with 2.6.24-12 as part of Ubuntu Hardy Heron updates
Comment 15 Venkatesh Pallipadi 2008-04-21 16:16:20 UTC
Is this still a problem with 2.6.25.
Comment 16 Zhang Rui 2008-07-14 20:42:46 UTC
can you please verify if the problem still exists with 2.6.26?
Comment 17 Sam Liddicott 2008-07-16 00:02:06 UTC
Is there a particular 2.6.26 set of debs you want me to try? I'll need 
the nvidia to go with it.

Sam

Comment 18 Zhang Rui 2008-07-16 00:37:58 UTC
no,
but you'd better try a clean kernel.org kernel.
Comment 19 Sam Liddicott 2008-07-16 22:56:14 UTC
Would you be happy with an intrepid ibex test?

Sam

Comment 20 ykzhao 2008-07-21 22:16:24 UTC
Hi, Sam
   Will you please add the boot option of "hpet=off pci=nobios" on the latest kernel and see whether the problem still exists? 
   Thanks.
Comment 21 ykzhao 2008-07-21 23:34:50 UTC
Sorry the correct boot option should be "hpet=disable pci=nobios".("hpet=off" is not correct option).
Thanks.
Comment 22 Sam Liddicott 2008-07-22 22:56:03 UTC
I'll try that on 2.6.24 but it may take a while to gather enough statistical evidence as more recent kernels crashed less often.

I'll put those in the boot conf today.

Thanks for the tip.

Sam

Did You want me to try this on 2.6.26 or 2.6.24 ?

Sam

Comment 24 ykzhao 2008-07-27 08:13:49 UTC
Hi, Sam 
   Either of 2.6.24 and 2.6.26 is OK.
Comment 25 Zhang Rui 2008-09-09 19:34:59 UTC
sam, any updates?
Comment 26 Sam Liddicott 2008-09-09 23:21:53 UTC
With a intrepid kernel and the two boot options I was asked to use there have been no hangs.

It's been enough for me to be statistically sure that these 2 boot options made a difference.

Comment 27 Shaohua 2008-10-14 22:24:47 UTC
does a latest kernel work for you without any boot option? There are a lot of time/cstate updates recently.
Comment 28 Zhang Rui 2008-11-16 22:39:52 UTC
no response from the bug reporter.
sam, please re-open the bug if the problem still exists in the latest kernel, e.g. 2.6.27
