well we have no automated way to do so
as we are underpowered in terms of bug nrs, it is
routine to ask to file upstream. the debian kernel
does not carry any x86 specific patch.
also it is often much easier if upstream speaks directly
with the person that has the hardware at hand.

sure, ack.
so i'll circumvent bugzilla and add the new x86 maintainers
on cc to let them know about the 2.6.24 and 2.6.25-rc1 boot error
on shiny fujitsu p700 lifebook, with a Crusoe processor.

INT 6 is #UD, undefined instruction.

If you could send me a copy of your vmlinux file (not bzImage), it would 
speed things up.

I happen to have an old TM5800-based machine sitting around, so I can 
probably reproduce it.

FWIW, I misremembered the model number. It's a not-so-shiny P2110.

Are you sure that build matches the bug report?

The EIP given falls inside the .data segment of that kernel, 
specifically inside the symbol init_task.

Don't worry about it, already have reproduced it.

Okay, the faulting instruction is the following:

c0383360:       0f 1f 40 00             nopl   0x0(%eax)

The Crusoe code morphing software apparently doesn't recognize these 
"long noops", and (presumably) the rest of the hinting NOOP group.  gcc 
didn't use to generate them, and Crusoe/Efficeon generally do not 
benefit from code alignment anyway.  I suspect the best thing to do is 
to use either a 586 kernel or build a dedicated Crusoe kernel without 
code alignment.

Thought some more about this, and since this probably means gcc will 
generate this for userspace code as well nowadays, tm5800 should 
probably be downgraded to a 586-class machine.  Hence the Linux policy 
of promoting it to a 686-class machine for having CMOV is actually 
incorrect, it doesn't have all the userspace-visible features of a 
686-class machine, lacking long NOP.

The stack trace I copied down originally was for a 2.6.24 kernel. I can
copy down the one .25-pre if that'd be useful, but it sounds like you're
reproduced it on your own.

(I'm raising the priority of this bug report since it sounds like it
affects more than just my hardware.)
