Kernel panic during hibernate on Tyan S2881
Last modified: 2013-01-10 02:09:30 EST
Description of problem:
Going into hibernate on Tyan S2881 based system panics running 2.6.18-92.1.18.el5.
Code: 48 8b 04 11 48 89 04 16 48 83 c2 08 48 81 fa 00 10 00 00 75
Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception
Tried to capture with serial console, but all I get is:
Disabling non-boot CPUs ...
Breaking affinity for irq 4
CPU 1 is now offline
CPU1 is down
Stopping tasks: ==============================================================================================|
Shrinking memory... done (60097 pages freed)
usbdev2.1_ep81: PM: suspend 0->1, parent 2-0:1.0 already 1
usbdev1.1_ep81: PM: suspend 0->1, parent 1-0:1.0 already 1
Could you attach the full dmesg for this system? Does booting with the
kernel commandline argument avoid the oops?
Also, is it possible to test 5.3 on this system? A bug was fixed that would lead to failed hibernation on amd64 systems with 4GB or more of RAM.

dmesg from S2881 system
iommu=soft does appear to prevent the crash, however it appears to disable wake on lan as well. Or maybe wake on lan has never worked from hibernate and I just haven't been able to do it before. wake on lan from power off works.
5.3 will have to wait for a bit, but we will be moving to it soon.

dmesg from S2882 system
Also seeing on S2882 system. Have crash dumps as well.

Don't save aperture memory
The bug is caused by the system attempting to save and restore the contents of the iommu aperture. This patch should fix the problem and has been integrated into the 5.3 release.
I've installed the 2.6.18-128.1.1 kernel and indeed hibernate is now working. Thanks!
I am having trouble with wake on lan though. When I powerdown the NIC is left running (NIC light on the machine is on). When I use hibernate, the NIC is turned off. Does the kernel have any control over this, or is this a BIOS only thing?
Wake on LAN sounds like #476501. Could you subscribe to that bug and provide the information requested there?
Will do. Feel free to close this bug.
