SubjectBUG: NULL pointer dereference at ib_uverbs_comp_handler+0x20
Hi,

My system has been failing with recent kernels (4.12.x and 4.13-rc2)
with a NULL pointer dereference at the stack trace given at the end of
this email. This happens when simply running 'ib_write_bw -R <server>'
with a Chelsio T6 (cxgb4). I've bisected (log attached) to find the
offending commit to be:

commit 1e7710f3f6563940bb6bbc94aa8eadfd344a86af
Author: Matan Barak <matanb@mellanox.com>
IB/core: Change completion channel to use the reworked objects schema

Reverting this commit (and the dependent commits db1b5ddd53365 and
e0fcc61113c that also fix other bugs with this commit) from v4.12.3
fixes the issue.

I did the bisect with the userspace libraries in Debian Stretch but I
also had this bug with rdma-core v14. I was pretty sure v4.12 kernels
worked for me in the past but likely only before I upgraded from Jessie
to Stretch.

Thanks,

Logan


PS. As a side rant, this bug was found after a very *frustrating* day of
what was supposed to be the 20 minute task of getting my RDMA cards
plugged in again. I tried with both CX4s and the T6s (and I'm still not
sure if my CX4s work yet). Instead, it turns out there's a whole mess of
bugs in the kernel I had to go up against. I went back and forth between
different versions of the userspace libraries because I was sure 4.11
worked -- but it turned out 4.11.10+, 4.12.x and who knows what other
stable kernels are currently broken by the bug fixed in [1]. And there
was a whole other bug that broke things that was fixed in the 4.12-rc
series that I had to carefully bisect around to find the one reported
above. So frustrating!!
