Latest working kernel version:188.8.131.52
Hardware Environment:AMD X2 64 / MCP
Can't boot with FAIR_GROUP_SCHED=Y
Boot stops after cpu/group allocation. Last line is:
net_namespace size 120 bytes
OK, the fact that toggling FAIR_GROUP_SCHED affects it is pretty convincing.
I'm confused about the "net_namespace size 120 bytes" message. As
far as I can tell the string "net_namespace" does not occur anywhere
in the kernel source. Where did it come from??
Can you please add the parameter initcall_debug to the kernel boot
command line? That might tell us more about where it is hanging.
When removing FAIR_GROUP_SCHED, the net_namespace doesn't show up.
googling a bit shows it's related to Network init:
I got it in my kernel at:
Not sure it comes from a 3rd party extension.
I don't have serial port for console logging. So here's the picture:
So from that output it seems that the machine hung in ksysfs_init().
Greg, Kay: I have a vague idea that this has been reported
before. Does it look familiar?
No, I've not heard this one before. Perhaps it's something to do with Eric's namespace changes?
but the machine seems to have hung in ksysfs_init()?
Francois, this sounds like something we'll need to bisect, if you have the time. There are some instructions at http://www.kernel.org/doc/local/git-quick.html
Rafael, could you please keep an eye on this one for inclusion in the regressions list?
After bisecting many reboots, I couldn't make it hang.
Stock kernel 2.6.25rc1 and 184.108.40.206 works.
I wasn't able to find differences between the releases ./net/ directories.
Anyway, the packaged kernel config shows difference in accepted config options, so they may have been custom patchs anyway.
Marking as invalid here and moving bu to packager's bugzilla.
