SubjectDefect (Bug) Report
[1.] One line summary of the problem:

Defect is kernel hang on Dual Processor, Athlon MP system.

[2.] Full description of the problem/report:

The system regularly experiences short (from 1 to 5 seconds)
hangs where both processors appear to be "hung". Most often,
the system will recover, but in three different cases the
system has hung "permanently" (for values of "permanently"
ranging from 10 minutes, to at most four hours before I gave
up and hit reset).

[3.] Keywords (i.e., modules, networking, kernel):

SMP issue. My current WAG is that this is some kind of spinlock
issue related to allocating huge amounts of memory in user space
programs (up to three times the actual installed core).

[4.] Kernel version (from /proc/version):

Linux version 2.4.18 (root@morningstar) (gcc version 2.95.4
20011002 (Debian prerelease)) #13 SMP Sat Jan 18 13:21:01 MST 2003

[5.] Output of Oops.

Sorry, but since the system hung, there was no Oops.

I am an HPUX kernel developer in my "real job". On our systems,
in this situation, I would execute a TOC (transfer of control)
then attempt to analyze the dump to see what the processors
where doing.

Is there a recognized standard procedure for creating such a
dump under Linux?

Sadly, PC hardware does not have support for "TOC", but if
there is some other method that has been developed to do
this, one that does not negatively impact normal system operation
and performance, I will set it up.

[6.] A small shell script or example program which triggers the
problem (if possible)

Sorry, but this seems to be intermittent. Attempts to reproduce
this have generated intermittent hangs (allocate from three to
four times MAX physical core), but do not guarantee a complete
system hang.

[7.] Environment

???

Is this physical, network, hardware, what?

OK, hardware then:

Memory : 512 MBytes, ECC, 266 MHz FSB.
Disk : All SCSI. See below.
Mother Board: Tyan Tiger MPX S2466N
Networking : Two ethernet cards, one 10 Mbps, one 100 Mbps.

Adquate cooling and power.

[7.1.] Software (add the output of the ver_linux script here)


If some fields are empty or look unusual you may have an old version.
Compare to the current minimal requirements in Documentation/Changes.

[7.7.] Other information that might be relevant to the problem
(please look in /proc and include all information that you
think to be relevant):

I had a great deal of difficulty getting an IDE based SamSung
CD/RW drive working on this system.

I had to play around with "Sharing PCI IDE interrupts support",
and "Use PCI DMA by default when available" options in the
kernel configuration to find a configuration that would not
hang the kernel when attempting to burn a CDR.

So, to obtain further information, I would need some kind of ability
to force an Oops . . . can this be done with SysReq hot keys? There
doesn't appear to be any indication that this is the case.

For starters, I've gone in and activated Magic SysReq key (just in case),
spinlock debugging (best guess as to reason of hang), and verbose BUG
reporting (for luck!).

Any other suggestions, or recommendations to get more info?

Thanks,
John S.
