SubjectVM deadlock
Hello,

I'm not sure wether this is a reiserfs bug or a kernel bug,
so I'm posting to both lists...

My linux box suddenly was not availbale using ssh|telnet,
but it responded to pings. On console login, I could type
"root", but after pressing "return", there was no reaction,
and pressing keys did not result in writing them on the
screen.

"Emergency sync" and "Remount R/O" did not have any
response.

That's why I pressed Alt+SysRq+P 5 times and wrote all stack
traces (without registers) onto paper. After that, I pressed
Alt+SysRq+T and also wrote 3 long stack traces (others were
available too, but too short) down.

After that, I wanted to kill processes and accidently
pressed Alt+SysRq+K (I did not want to kill init). After
that, there was sudden disk and screen activity. It seemed
that the system got alive again, but now, every process was
killed. On screen, I also could see many oopses from
reiserfs complaining about calling "journal_begin" on read
only media, but this is from "Remount R/O", I think.

This is what I copied from paper by hand, trying to be in a
suitable format for ksymoops:

If the current kernel and/or modules do not match the log,
you can get
more accurate output by telling me the kernel version and
where to find

It seems to me that there was a memory low or so and linux
was unable to recover from that problem. Maybe this is a
deadlock where every kernel process tries to allocate
memory, fails, and therefore relinquishes the CPU to the
next kernel process, which in turn fails, and so on...

I had a probably similar|connected problem (but with no
"ping" responding) with linux-2.4.5-pre3, described here:
http://lists.omnipotent.net/reiserfs/200106/msg00214.html
