SubjectRegression in 2.6.25-rc3: s2ram segfaults before suspending
Hi all,

I have a Thinkpad T61p, which I'm able to suspend with s2ram on
Linux However when I try to suspend it on 2.6.25-rc3, s2ram
dies after changing to vt1, with a segfault. I'm using s2ram from cvs,
and libx86 version 0.99 from

Some details about the segfault:

$ sudo gdb ./s2ram
(gdb) run
Starting program: /home/ksm/downloads/suspend/s2ram
Switching from vt7 to vt1
Calling get_mode

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0xb7facf4a in run_vm86 () at lrmi.c:526
526 asm volatile (
(gdb) list
521 static int
522 lrmi_vm86(struct vm86_struct *vm)
523 {
524 int r;
525 #ifdef __PIC__
526 asm volatile (
527 "pushl %%ebx\n\t"
528 "movl %2, %%ebx\n\t"
529 "int $0x80\n\t"
530 "popl %%ebx"
(gdb) bt

#5 0x0804954f in main (argc=1, argv=0x0) at s2ram-main.c:92

I have tried to bisect the problem, and it fingered the following

commit 82bc03fc158e28c90d7ed9919410776039cb4e14
Author: Ingo Molnar <>

x86: add PWT to NOCACHE flags

Reverting this commit in the bisected tree (by executing git show
82bc03fc158e28c90d7ed9919410776039cb4e14 | patch -R -p1), makes the
segfault go away. I've run make clean between each kernel compile, to be
sure the tree was correctly compiled.

I have attached the .config I'm using for 2.6.25-rc3 (when bisecting, I
just choose the default on every question). If necessary, I can try to
reconstruct the one I ended up with after the bisection.

Hope this makes sense to someone, and thanks in advance.

Kind regards
Klaus S. Madsen
