strace causes kernel error: idr_remove called for id=0 which is not allocated
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:43 EST
Description of problem:
Saw an error show up in the dmesg log after I had been doing some strace runs on
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Strace a process (unsure of the circumstances)
Saw this kernel error in dmesg:
idr_remove called for id=0 which is not allocated.
I believe this is one of the possible symptoms of the bug in init_dev()
that was fixed in 2.6.18-19.el5 with the following patch tracking file:
If the problem still occurs with the current RHEL5.1 beta kernel,
please reopen this bug report.
Note to DonZ: that patch tracking file should list bug 230500 in the
header (instead of RHEL4 bug 214188).
