Description Pete Zaitcev 2006-05-08 22:42:29 EDT
Description of problem:

Messages appear on the guest console:

Timer ISR/0: Time went backwards: delta=11634587 cpu_delta=-24365413

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

Linux version 2.6.16-1.2111_FC5xenU (bhcompile@hs20-bc1-5.build.redhat.com) (gcc
version 4.1.0 20060304 (Red Hat 4.1.0-3)) #1 SMP Thu May 4 21:47:01 EDT 2006

How reproducible:

Not often.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot a guest
2. scp a kernel over
Actual results:


Expected results:

No messages

Additional info:

The guest's operation does not seem to be detrimentally affected.

This started with 2.6.16-1.2111_FC5xenU. The kernel 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5xenU
does not seem to exibit this.

The scp is obviously a contributor, but there's something else to it.
The scp was ran from the dom0 to domU, locally.

Comment 2 Rik van Riel 2006-10-02 23:35:36 EDT
This bug appears to have been solved upstream, and should no longer be present
in current kernels.  Please reopen if you can somehow reproduce it.
