Subject[BUG] infinite loop in find_get_pages()
From
Date
Linus,

It seems current kernels (3.1.0-rc6) are really unreliable, or maybe I
expect too much from them.

On my 4GB x86_64 machine (2 quad-core cpus, 2 threads per core), I can
have a cpu locked in

find_get_pages -> radix_tree_gang_lookup_slot -> __lookup


Problem is : A bisection will be very hard, since a lot of kernels
simply destroy my disk (the PCI MRRS horror stuff).

Messages at console :

INFO: rcu_preempt_state detected stalls on CPUs/tasks: {} (detected by
11 t=60002 jiffies)
perf top -C 1

Events: 3K cycles
+ 43,08% bash [kernel.kallsyms] [k] __lookup
+ 41,51% bash [kernel.kallsyms] [k] find_get_pages
+ 15,31% bash [kernel.kallsyms] [k] radix_tree_gang_lookup_slot

|

Steps to reproduce :

In one terminal, kernel builds in a loop (defconfig + hpsa driver)

cd /usr/src/linux
while :
do
make clean
make -j128
done


In another term :

while :
do
echo 3 >/proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
sleep 20
done


Before the lock, I can see in another terminal some swapping activity.

$ vmstat 1
