SubjectRe: WARNING: at arch/x86/kernel/cpu/perf_event.c:989
From
Ok, I fixed the problem this time but in further testing I uncovered
another issue:


while true; do perf record -a -g hackbench 10 thread 4000; done &
while true; do perf record -a -g hackbench 10 thread 4000; done &

We hit:

Which is pointing to the Intel specific:

intel_pmu_handle_irq()
again:
intel_pmu_ack_status(status);
if (++loops > 100) {
WARN_ONCE(1, "perfevents: irq loop stuck!\n");
perf_event_print_debug();
intel_pmu_reset();
goto done;
}
We are in a constant interrupt loop for a reason I don't yet understand.
Sure we have two counters going, bu given the callstack, one is being
stopped.

I know we talked about that a couple of weeks back, but after all, it may
be that it is not possible to run the frequency adjustment code without
stopping the entire PMU because of risk of interrupts. But it is not clear
to me what's causing this at this point.

I suggest we still apply my patch to fix the x86_pmu_start() first, then
I will submit a second patch to fix that one. Agreed?
