a screen picture with a kernel panic
Description of problem:
An attempt to boot kernel-4.4.0-0.rc2.git2.1.fc24.x86_64 ends up with
Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception in interrupt.
The whole affair starts with
BUG: Unable to handle NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000130
IP: [<ffffffff81164705>] pids_cancel.constprop.6+0x5/0x40
Details I was able to capture with a photo of a screen on an attached picture.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
So far on every try (except of one - see further down).
1. I managed to boot the kernel in question _once_. That was before an extensive series of rawhide updates but I do not see how a user space can be involved in this.
2. This kernel panic is preceded earlier by a backtrace which may be something like from bug 1284109. It scrolls too quickly for me to be sure and nothing is recorded in logs. No suprise here as file systems are not mounted yet when the whole thing goes belly up.
3. kernel-4.4.0-0.rc0.git9.1.fc24.x86_64 used to boot but it does not anymore; it is getting a panic too.
4. None of rc1 kernels I tried I was able to boot but they were just stuck somewhere in initrd without any progress and I did not see any panics or warnings.
5. kernel-4.2.6-301.fc23.x86_64 from f23 release boots the same installation without any panics, backtraces or other dramas. Lucky me!
