Contains: list of installed packages, typical running processes, kernel backtrace
Description of problem:
Soft lockup for 61 seconds.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Unknown - occurred on an otherwise idle system, running HA-Linux and the usual OS system services.
Steps to Reproduce:
Unknown (see above).
Attached is a file that contains:
(1) a list of the packages installed on the system
(2) a (typical) process listing - the system is generally idle
(3) the kernel backtrace info
Does this still happen with the latest f14 kernel?
It occurred with this kernel: 184.108.40.206-45.fc14.x86_64
The system has not yet been upgraded beyond that.
there's no obvious fix for this in the git log post 2.6.35, though the VM has changed dramatically over the same time period.
Given where we are in f14's lifecycle, we aren't going to be rebasing again, and without an obvious fix for this bug, it's unlikely that it will get fixed there.
For f15 onwards, we're going back to regularly rebasing, so in future such bugs should hopefully be easier to diagnose.
