Description of problem: Kernel hangs suddenly.
divide error: 0000
Usually I don't use RedHat's kernel directly, but OpenVZ's based on RHEL's. Please refer to mine bugreport to OpenVZ:
The upstream commit URL:
I'm now building the testing kernel packages to test.
Promised kernel packages are available at:
Could you please test them and report back results?
> Could you please test them and report back results?
My bugreport to OpenVZ project contained patch, I had backported from mainstream by myself:
Since the moment I had sent the patch to OpenVZ, I was using the patch (even a bit earlier, actually). The patch is trivial and it doesn't really require any complex testing, actually I was tested since 2.6.26 came out. OpenVZ's kernel I was using started at last working w/o hangs since I had applied it.
So, put the patch into new RedHat kernel's releases ASAP, don't waste time -- it's a nasty bug and your customers shouldn't have it for such a long time since it was fixed in mainstream.
OK, I treat it as successfully tested.
