Description Clark Williams 2008-07-14 15:29:41 EDT
Description of problem:
RT kernel fails to boot on blade1 of HSV bladecenter (blade2 boots the kernel
and runs fine). Same blade boots and runs RHEL5.2 kernel.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL5.2
2. Install MRG RT kernel
3. Boot RT kernel
Actual results:

Kernel hangs after reporting amount of memory available (see attached console

Expected results:

Running kernel

Additional info:

Debbugging printk's indicate that the hang is occuring in
calibrate_delay_direct(). Jiffies are not incrementing, so the calibration loop
never terminates.

Boot log for LS21 lockup
Comment 2 Clark Williams 2008-07-14 17:17:04 EDT
I swapped the two LS21's that were in slots 1 & 2 and the failing blade
(formerly in slot 1) reported double bit errors on DIMM slots 5 & 6, disabled
the two slots and then booted on up. 

Here's a cut-n-paste from the web interface to the event log:

1  E  BLADE_02 	 07/14/08, 21:07:55 	(SN#YK10A269W03L) DIMM number 5 failed.
2  E  BLADE_02 	 07/14/08, 21:07:55 	(SN#YK10A269W03L) POSTBIOS: 289 Board 1
DIMM Pair 3 Double Bit Error.
3  E  BLADE_02 	 07/14/08, 21:07:54 	(SN#YK10A269W03L) DIMM number 6 failed.
4  E  BLADE_02 	 07/14/08, 21:07:54 	(SN#YK10A269W03L) POSTBIOS: 289 Board 1
DIMM Pair 3 Double Bit Error.
5  I  BLADE_02 	 07/14/08, 21:07:25 	(SN#YK10A269W03L) System Reboot
