Subject: Scheduler broken? sdhci issues with scheduling
Date: Fri, 29 Feb 2008 11:52:57 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

[ Please Cc me on replies ]

I had a bug with sdhci which Pierre Ossman looked at for me.

In the end essentially the fix was to use HZ=1000 and nothing else.
Pierre seemed to think that this was a bug in the scheduler.

I'm interested if someone who groks the scheduler could take a look at
the mmc/* code and see if it's abusing HZ or if there's anything
obviously wrong there.  If it's not then perhaps there really is a bug
in the scheduler?


Here's the log that caused him to suspect the scheduler:
and his post saying so:

Originally I tried to narrow it down:
and shows a commit that seemed to "fix" it for me
but apparently the commit I reverted was good

I'm happy to provide more information or try different kernels/config
options etc (I really should upgrade the kernel on my laptop anyway).
