kernel 2.6.25-0.218.rc8.git7.fc9.x86_64 oopses in radeon module
Last modified: 2008-04-16 15:12:34 EDT
Description of problem:
The following was produced in log files:
BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at ffffc200002b1e08
IP: [<ffffffff8838291d>] :radeon:radeon_driver_lastclose+0x21/0x3b
Fixing recursive fault but reboot is needed
A full oops trace is attached.
After such oops a zombie X process is left in a D state and
cannot be killed. A display and a keyboard stop responding although
a login from a remote is still possible. The message "reboot is neeeded"
above is not kidding.
It looks like that this is always repeatable with a help of
'pkill -f gdm' command. Rebooting with 2.6.25-0.204.rc8.git4.fc9.x86_64
kernel makes that command to perform without oopsing.
'pkill -f X' does not seem to be a problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.25-0.218.rc8.git7.fc9. Also /usr/sbin/gdm-restart
seems to be harmless but that just sends SIGHUP to an existing
gdm process and does not terminate an exisiting one.
apparently always as described

oops trace from 2.6.25-0.218.rc8
I am afraid that I am getting the same oops by just logging out
from a desktop session.
With an update to kernel-2.6.25-0.234.rc9.git1.fc9.x86_64 so far,
so good. :-) Thanks.
