Description Mark McLoughlin 2008-02-25 05:54:06 EST
Seeing this with kernel-xen-2.6.24-23.7.pv_ops during DomU boot:

Red Hat nash version 6.0.29 starting
Mounting proc filesystem
Mounting sysfs filesystem
Creating /dev
Creating initial device nodes
Setting up hotplug.

[ INFO: possible recursive locking detected ]
2.6.24-23.7.pv_ops.fc9xen #1
init/1 is trying to acquire lock:
 (__pte_lockptr(new)){--..}, at: [<c10047c4>] pin_page+0x6c/0x12d

but task is already holding lock:
 (__pte_lockptr(new)){--..}, at: [<c10047c4>] pin_page+0x6c/0x12d

other info that might help us debug this:
4 locks held by init/1:
 #0:  (&mm->mmap_sem){----}, at: [<c10336c7>] copy_process+0xa7f/0x1306
 #1:  (&mm->mmap_sem/1){--..}, at: [<c10336dd>] copy_process+0xa95/0x1306
 #2:  (&mm->page_table_lock){--..}, at: [<c1004998>] xen_dup_mmap+0x11/0x24
 #3:  (__pte_lockptr(new)){--..}, at: [<c10047c4>] pin_page+0x6c/0x12d

Note, this is only visible on x86_32
Comment 3 Mark McLoughlin 2008-03-25 13:28:12 EDT
Seems this is a harmless warning:


Hopefully upstream will figure out a way to avoid the warning, but there's no
point in keeping this bug open to track the issue.
