Description Kazutoshi Morioka 2006-05-03 20:06:57 EDT
Description of problem:
After upgrading to kernel-2.6.16-1.2107_FC5,
NFS server do not respond to mount request.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
depended on hardware. I have tested this on four PCs.
a. Athlon XP 2200, 8139too : occur
b. Sempron 2600+, e1000 : occur
c. Celeron 950MHz, r8169 : not occur
d. K6-2 450MHz, tulip : not occur

I switched HDD between a and c, then tested again:
a. Athlon XP 2200, 8139too: occur
c. Celeron 950MHz, r8169: not occur
It seems CPU related?

Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade to kernel-2.6.16-1.2107_FC5
2. reboot
3. service nfs start
4. exportfs '*:/home'
5. mount foobar:/home /mnt # from other host
Actual results:
NFS server not responding, and cause timeout.
mount: mount to NFS server 'foobar' failed: timed out (retrying).

Expected results:
foobar:/home is mounted on /mnt

Additional info:
Comment 1 Dave Jones 2006-05-03 23:37:54 EDT
does booting with pci=nomsi make this go away?
Comment 2 Kazutoshi Morioka 2006-05-03 23:47:37 EDT
I tried "pci=nomsi" and got a message "PCI: Unknown option `nomsi'".
All problems are stay there.

dmesg with "pci=nomsi"
Comment 4 Herbert Xu 2006-05-04 00:14:02 EDT
Sigh, this option was added post 2.6.16.  Please try noapic instead.  Thanks.
Comment 5 Dave Jones 2006-05-04 00:16:53 EDT
alternatively, 2108 from http://people.redhat.com/davej/kernels/Fedora/FC5 has
this disabled by default.

dmesg with noapic

I already tried "noapic" and "pci=irqroute", and got same problems.

Comment 10 josip 2006-05-04 08:37:16 EDT
After upgrading to kernel-2.6.16-1.2107_FC5, my network is dead.  Old
kernel-2.6.16-1.2096_FC5 works just fine, though.

Configuration:  Athlon 64 X2 on an ASUS A8N-SLI Premium motherboard

alias eth1 forcedeth
alias eth0 skge

where eth0 is not connected to any network, and eth1 is the main interface on a
GigE network. 

Results: Boot hangs at NFS mount.  Booting  kernel-2.6.16-1.2107_FC5 in single
user mode then starting network shows normal routing etc, but pings to machines
on the same subnet fail.  Old kernel-2.6.16-1.2096_FC5 works just fine, though.
Comment 11 Chris Siebenmann 2006-05-04 16:28:33 EDT
For what it is worth, I have more or less the same problem as comment #10.
I have a Tyan Tomkat K8E (same nForce Ultra 4 chipset as the ASUS A8N-SLI
I believe) with an Athlon X2 4400+ and the x86_64 version of FC5. Under
.2107 the forcedeth driver doesn't work; under .2096 it does.

More data:
- a stock kernel.org works fine.
- 'noapic' and 'pci=irqroute' make no difference.
- on .2107 the driver emits no complaints about life or anything, as far as
  I can see; it just doesn't emit or receive packets.
Comment 12 Devin Reade 2006-05-04 17:00:07 EDT
It looks like the original submission was wrt the linux box running an NFS
server.  For the record, I'm seeing what appears to be the same problem where
the linux box is the NFS _client_ (the server is Solaris 9).  Rebooting into
the previous 2.6.16-1.2096_FC5smp allows me to work.
Comment 13 Kazutoshi Morioka 2006-05-04 22:47:09 EDT
I tested 2.6.16-1.2109_FC5, and all problems are gone.
NFS server works again, graphical boot works again.
Thank you Dave!
Comment 14 Chris Siebenmann 2006-05-05 20:56:58 EDT
I can confirm that 2.6.16-1.2111_FC5 (which is what I found as current at the
URL in comment #5) fixes the problem for me.
Comment 15 josip 2006-05-07 12:49:50 EDT
New kernel-2.6.16-1.2111_FC5 fixes the problem for me, too.
