Kernel oops while using loop devices in Xen0 with PAE
Last modified: 2009-12-14 15:39:45 EST
Description of problem:
Kernel oops and froze while using a mounted loop device
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount -o loop hd.img /mnt
2. cp -a huge_data/* /mnt
Computer totaly frozen and need a hard reboot. Sometimes we can see what seems
to be a kernel oops just before the crash
copying files in the mounted loop device shouldn't hang the system
This occurs on a IBM x365 with 12GB of RAM, therefor we need the PAE support.
This bug doesn't occur if we boot with the noacpi parameter
change QA contact
This report targets FC5, which is now end-of-life.
Please re-test against Fedora 7 or later, and if the issue persists, open a new bug.
