Description Sean Dilda 2004-01-21 12:46:19 EST
I am seeing a reproducable kernel BUG.

The machine is a Dell PowerEdge 2650, dual processor, 2.8GHz Xeon. 
The box has a terrabye software RAID (raid 5) that it shares out over
NFS to 108 clients.

When booting the system with all clients up and with open mounts to
the machine, within 5 minutes of finishing the init process, the
following BUG will occur:

I've reproduced this with the 2.4.20-20.9smp, 2.4.20-24.9smp,
2.4.20-28.9smp, and 2.4.20-28.9 kernels.  With the SMP kernels, once
the BUG hits, the systems hangs and becomes completely unresponsive. 
With the uni-processor kernel, the BUG hits, and it keeps going.  I've
had the system up for 12 hours now with the UP 2.4.20-28.9 kernel and
the BUG only hit the one time shortly after boot.

If you need nay more info, please let me know.

Turns out that changing out my SCSI cable caused this problem to go away.

I just saw this on RHEL AS 3.0 2.4.21-9ELhugmem kernel.
(inode.c: line 300).  Not reproducable so far.
