SubjectStrange block/scsi/workqueue issue
From
Date
Hi,

Sometime around the -rc1 time (I'm not sure exactly, but it seemed to
start around then) my test box stopped booting. Lacking a serial console
I didn't get around to looking further before I went on holiday, but
since the problem is still there in the latest Linus' tree, I've been
looking again today.

My original problem was that the messages were scrolling off the screen
before I could read them. Using a video camera to try and capture them
was unsuccessful.

Today I used a serial console, and magically it seemed that the initial
boot issue had gone away - so I guess there is at least an element of
timing dependence. However, not very long after boot, I got the attached
messages. These look suspiciously similar (bearing in mind I could only
see the last few lines) to the messages I was getting with the boot
issue.

I should also say that the box was idle aside from the usual f14 start
up tasks, so there was not much I/O going on at the time.

Is the workqueue by any chance trying to wait synchronously for itself
to finish?

Steve.
