Description Stephen Wong 2000-10-13 06:50:26 EDT
The system is not stable if you run

    insmod loop
    modprobe -s -k block-major-7

the process will never exit and the CPU load keep increasing.
Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2000-10-13 07:02:04 EDT
This is the loop asynchronous daemon which forgets to set its name properly,
so it looks like insmod/modprobe is running.
Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2001-01-15 12:19:08 EST
known bug, duplicate of bug 18115
