Description Aron Griffis 2008-05-06 20:12:55 EDT
Description of problem:
Two upstream xen/ia64 patches were inadvertently left behind in RHEL5.x:

-- adds missing locking
-- initialize missing ticks for steal time accounting on resume

-- avoid soft lockup when domain is resumed

Both of these should be fixed in RHEL, so I've ported the patches, tested them
and will attach them to this bug.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(and all prior RHEL5 xen/ia64 kernels)

backport of xen-unstable.hg 204046d99562 and 1a010d9444ba

This patch is simpler than the original changesets.  Changeset 204046d99562
includes a large block of code that runs optionally if
xen_ia64_settimefoday_after_resume is passed on the kernel command-line. 
That's superfluous to the fix so omitted from the port.  The same changeset
includes a large chunk of code that's commented out with #if 0, also omitted
from the port.

ia64 fix time resume

Your alternate patch may be simpler, but we like to stay close to upstream where possible.  That just makes it easier for us to port additional fixes in the future.  I've attached a new patch which is basically the two upstream c/s combined; this should be a pretty faithful backport.  Can you give this a once over to make sure it is sane?

I've uploaded a test kernel that contains this fix (along with several others)
to this location:


Could the original reporter try out the test kernels there, and report back if
it fixes the problem?

Actually, while going back through BZ's, I've found that this is basically a
dup of 288511.  Closing it as such.
