Description Frank Ch. Eigler 2008-07-03 16:58:12 EDT
Excerpting from bug #253156 comment #6; two systemtap testsuite failures
appear to be correctable with a kernel patch.  The severity of this bug
is low, but so appears to be the risk.

> FAIL: backtrace of yyy_func4.return (3)
> FAIL: print_stack of yyy_func4.return (1)

To fix this issue, we need to introduce following kernel enhancement.
Comment 1 Anton Arapov 2008-07-18 04:37:47 EDT
Frank, I've tried to reproduce the issue on:
 - systemtap version 0.6.2/0.131 built 2008-03-12
 - kernel-2.6.18-92.1.6.el5
 - kernel-2.6.18-97.el5 with the fix from upstream applied

and no luck... or otherwise - _luck_. testsuite tests done almost sucessfully
and absolutely identically on both kernels.

# make installcheck
FAIL: buildok/rpc-all-probes.stp
FAIL: buildok/signal-all-probes.stp
                === systemtap Summary ===
# of expected passes            459
# of unexpected failures        2
# of unexpected successes       1
# of expected failures          170
# of unknown successes          1
# of known failures             5
# of untested testcases         19
# of unsupported tests          1

N.B. make check gave me exactly the same FAILs.

Does it mean that failures magically disappear or somebody has something
Did I miss something?

Sorry, I made a mistake: bug #232489 comment #27
appears to include this patch already.
