Description Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2021-03-22 18:10:47 UTC
An issue was discovered in fs/fuse/fuse_i.h in the Linux kernel before 5.11.8. A "stall on CPU" can occur because a retry loop continually finds the same bad inode.

Reference and upstream patch:
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=775c5033a0d164622d9d10dd0f0a5531639ed3ed

Comment 1 Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2021-03-22 18:11:34 UTC
Created kernel tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1941763]

Comment 5 Wade Mealing 2021-03-30 02:18:11 UTC
Mitigation:


As the FUSE module will be auto-loaded when required, its use can be disabled  by preventing the module from loading with the following instructions:

# echo "install fuse /bin/true" >> /etc/modprobe.d/disable-fuse.conf

The system will need to be restarted if the FUSE modules are loaded. In most circumstances, the CIFS kernel modules will be unable to be unloaded while the FUSE filesystems are in  use.

If the system requires this module to work correctly, this mitigation may not be suitable.

If you need further assistance, see KCS article https://access.redhat.com/solutions/41278 or contact Red Hat Global Support Services.
