Description James Hunt 2006-06-28 10:46:10 EDT
Description of problem:

I've been playing around with 'tc' for qos/traffic shaping, but causes kernel
panics with kernel 2.6.17-1.2139_FC5.

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


How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. tc qdisc add dev lo root netem delay 1000ms
2. panic!
Actual results:

BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address 1a191817

 <0> Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception in interrupt


Note: I've had to copy this panic by hand as I don't have a serial cable.
However, I've checked the addresses, etc for correctness.

Expected results:

no panic!

I suspect this particular bug would hit RHEL customers quite hard if they're
running the box as a router... any ideas anyone?
Comment 2 James Hunt 2006-07-14 06:33:27 EDT
This still panics my box using kernel 2.6.17-1.2145_FC5smp.
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2006-08-11 02:17:20 EDT
Can't reproduce this here (after trying multiple boxes/configs).  I'm highly
suspicious of the binary modules you have loaded.  Please reopen if it's
reproducable without them ever having been loaded.
