Description Bryce 2005-06-02 00:38:02 UTC
Description of problem:

spinlock panic

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

on reboot every now and then

I can tell you exactly whats happening
Observe the two attached images
one shows the panic and the other is a screenshot of the code involved

notice the two spin_lock_irqsave()'s
Whats happening is simple, when there is a reset of the drive it invokes a
restore of timings. This is part of auto tuning, so it is obvious you get a
double lock down, hence the spinlock crash.

Incidentally this arises from the mainline 2.6.11 kernel source and isn't the
result of any patchs that are added to the kernel by RHAT

Umm yes. Does the attachment I'll add fix it ?

An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem.   Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.

If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.

Thank you.

Comment 7 Bryce 2005-09-08 13:29:49 UTC
Seems to be fixed (it was a every now and then bug in the first place) I've not
seen it for quite some time so I think this is fixed.
