Description Joy Pu 2010-06-17 03:40:44 EDT
Hotplug cpu in RHEL6-32 guest will cause a kernel panic. This can reproduce in 2.6.32-36 and 2.6.32-33 kernel, but not in 2.6.32-25 kernel.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
host kernel: 2.6.32-33.el6.x86_64 
guest kernel: 2.6.32-36.el6.i686
# rpm -qa | grep qemu

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot up a smp RHEL-6.0-32 guest
2. listen to serial by nc
# nc -U /tmp/serial-20100617-130306-gcxW
3. hotplug cpu1 with echo:
# echo 0 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online
# echo 1 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online

Actual results:
guest kernel panic when hotplug cpu1

Expected results:
guest can hotplug cpu1 successfully

Comment 4 Peter Martuccelli 2010-06-25 11:23:19 EDT
This is an CPU online problem, not a hotplug issue.
Comment 6 Don Zickus 2010-07-16 14:20:32 EDT
I believe this is a duplicate of bz581722.

The hrtimers do not get shutdown correctly.  The patch hasn't made it into any kernel yet, otherwise I would just have you try it.  The other bz has an attached patch.   But I can whip up a scratch kernel with that patch too, if you want to verify it fixes your problem.
Comment 7 Prarit Bhargava 2010-07-16 14:33:49 EDT
Don, for now I'm dup'ing to 581722.  If it turns out that this is not a dup, I can undup and I can go from there...
