SubjectRe: [PATCH] sched_groups are expected to be circular linked list, make it so right after allocation
Hi Igor,
Thanks for fixing this bug! We encountered the same issue with an
IA64 systems too. That system could boot with 2.6.32, but can't boot with
any 3.x.x kernels. We have just found the root cause today.
