Description of problem:
Kernel 2163 is definately unhappy with my Opteron hardware. :)
using it results in two serious issues, both of which go away when I
use 2135 instead:
1 - vim seems unable to write to disk (Receives SIGILL's).
2 - sabdb 7.4 generates kernel oopses while running.
I'll attach examples of both below, as well as a dmesg.
Kernel 2135 completely eliminates both issues.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Created attachment 97421 [details]
traceback of vim issue

Kernel oopses while sapdb is running.

dmesg from the box in question.
Correction. Kernel 2135 does *not* address the sapdb issue, but DOES
correct the vim issue.
Adding Justin, since he's beeen working with me in the
fedora-test-list on this issue.
As a workaround, starting sapdb with LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 corrects
the Kernel messages. So whatever the problem is seems to live in NPTL
- Kernel interaction.
This is not a kernel/NPTL interraction issue, this is an issue with
SAPDB, once they build with NPTL this should be resolved.
