SubjectFwd: Regression: patch " hvc_console: display printk messages on console." causing infinite loop with 3.2-rc0 + Xen.
From
<plain text forwarding>

Bummer.  Sorry about that.
Konrad, could you give me a hand figuring out what's up with this -
I'm not running Zen here.  (If there's a test suite I could have run,
mea culpa, and please point me in the right direction.)

The "console [hvc0] enabled" message is coming from register_console()
in printk.c, and it doesn't have any loops.
It's called from hvc_console_init(), hvc_instantiate(), and
hvc_alloc(), none of which have loops.  The call in hvc_alloc() is the
one I added, so either I've inadvertently made one of the other two
repeat (I'm guestting hvc_instantiate() is the one you're using), or
you're infinitely calling hvc_alloc().  There's a calls to hvc_alloc()
in hvc_xen.c::xen_hvc_init(), and in init_port_console() in
virtio_console.c, but again, no loops.  Similarly for
hvc_instantiate().

So, could I trouble you to put a breakpoint in register_console() and
send me the stack?

Thanks,
Miche
