541 memory corruption/panics with raid5
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:10:19 EST
Description of problem:
kernel-2.6.8-1.541 seems to have some kind of memory corruption and
kernel panics when raid5 is in use. My system has RAID1 for /, RAID1
for swap, and RAID5 for /home, across four disks.
* Booting FC3test2 rescue mode, mounting the /mnt/sysimage raid shows
lots of garbage on the screen. ls output shows corrupted looking
filenames for anything that is colored. This is indicative of kernel
induced memory corruption.
* During normal operation running 541, there are random kernel panics.
* Loopback mounting iso images on the raid5 array rapidly causes
This issue is confirmed solved in 2.6.9-rc2-bk4+
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This seems solved by 590+.
