SubjectRe: VMs freezing when host is running 4.14
Hi,

after in total nine weeks of bisecting, broken filesystems, service
outages (thankfully on unportant systems), 4.15 seems to have fixed the
issue. After going to 4.15, the crashes never happened again.

They have, however, happened with each and every 4.14 release I tried,
which I stopped doing with 4.14.15 on Jan 28.

This means, for me, that the issue is fixed and that I have just wasted
nine weeks of time.

For you, this means that you have a crippling, data-eating issue in the
current long-term releae kernel. I do sincerely hope that I never have
to lay my eye on any 4.14 kernel and hope that no major distribution
will release with this version.

Greetings
Marc
