Hi,

Just to let you know that this my simple patch solves the
'register_cpu_notifier' being undefined when SMP is set but not
HOTPLUG_CPU.

Dunno if its the right thing, tho.

Cheers

Hi,

I have terrible news: 2.6.20-rt5 does not boot at all on a couple
machines I was brave enough to try -- a P4@3.3Ghz SMP/HT desktop, and a
Core2 Duo T7200@2.0Ghz laptop. For the first case I could capture the
following dump via serial console:

Hi,

Just tried to build 2.6.21-rc5-rt6 and it is failing on build time.

...

kernel/sched.c:3830: error: ‘print_functions’ undeclared (first use in

Just to let you know that -rt5 was doing fine with very same .config .

oops - indeed! I've uploaded -rc5-rt7 with the fix. (it includes a few 
other fixes as well)

note that for Fedora-ish distros there's an easy yum test-kernel 
available from the rt-testing repo:

cat > /etc/yum.repos.d/rt-testing.repo
[rt-testing]
name=Ingo's Real-Time (-rt) test-kernel for FC6
baseurl=http://people.redhat.com/mingo/realtime-preempt/yum-testing/yum/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0
<Ctrl-D>

this includes Linus-git-bleeding-edge as well as the base kernel. (rt7 
is based on upstream HEAD 755948cfca16c7)

[the rt-testing repo currently includes the rt6 rpm, i've just started 
the rt7 build, it should be available in half an hour or so]

Ingo et al.

I'm afraid having no good news (once again). After building
2.6.21-rc5-rt8 and recently on -rt10 I've found some trouble running on
a Core2 T7200 laptop (SMP). Somehow, specially after starting jackd, the
whole system starts crawling to death. It just slows down to some kind
of Big Freeze, with no evidence over the console whatsoever, so that I'm
ultimately left with a brick on my hands.

This behavior is consistent and occurs every time after jackd is
started. It does not seem to occur on -rt5 and earlier.

I wish I could give you more details, but fact is I don't know where to
look. The machine just freezes silently.

Bye now.

could you try rt11 (which fixes two bad bugs in rt10)? If rt11 freezes 
too then could you try to unapply the attached patch? This patch is the 
main delta between rt5 and rt11. (plus upstream changes but those 
shouldnt matter for this problem)

FYI, i've released -rt12 meanwhile - and the patch to unapply from -rt12

Hi Ingo et al.

It's been quite a while, since last time I've complained about the -rt
kernel patch series. This time I'm afraid I have a nasty specialty I've
been trying to figure out and isolate but to no definitive results.

Fact is, since 2.6.21-rt2 and still on latest -rt8, that I'm facing
troubled behavior while running on a Core2 T7200 laptop (SMP). Somehow,
soon or later, the whole system starts crawling to death. It just slows
down to some kind of Big Freeze, with no evidence over the console
whatsoever, so that I'm ultimately left with a brick on my hands.

This behavior is consistent and occurs every time after a while. It
surely does not occur on 2.6.21-rt1 and earlier. Even stranger, it does
not occur on another but older P4@3.3Ghz desktop (HT/SMP) where a very
identical system image is deployed (openSUSE 10.2 i386, gcc 4.1.2, KDE
3.5.7)

I wish I could give you more details, but the fact is I don't know where
to look. The machine just freezes silently, again and again, with all
kernels from -rt2 to -rt8 inclusive, with no traceable evidence, at
least to my knowledge. The only symptom that I can come about is that,
from some moment on and ever since, the system cannot start any new
process anymore, or otherwise takes forever to realize and launch any
new started process thread.

A sample dmesg output:
   http://www.rncbc.org/datahub/dmesg-2.6.21-rt5.0
The corresponding .config:
   http://www.rncbc.org/datahub/config-2.6.21-rt5.0

Again, there's no logged evidence of the problem, which is as nasty as
repeatable after each boot. Unfortunately, it's not quite
deterministically reproducible, this behavior of turning into an
unresponsive brick ;) It's just a matter of time, or so I think. That's
why I have no clues.

Is there anything I can do better to help myself figuring out this
issue? As this is a  modern laptop such things like a serial console are
unavailable, but it would be nice to track things up over netconsole
perhaps?

I just need some bright and nice directions now ;) Hope someone finds
this worth of attention too. Meanwhile, I'll be happy with 2.6.21-rt1 :)

Cheers.

Can you boot with "hpet=disable" on the command line ?

If that does not help, please provide the output of /proc/timer_list.

Thanks,

Nope. It doesn't seem to have significant effect. Same time-bomb
behavior: after an indeterminate period of uptime, the systems stops
responding and cannot spawn new processes (current running ones still
live on, strange).

This is with my latest iteration:
  http://www.rncbc.org/datahub/config-2.6.21.1-rt8.0

Normal boot on which it behaves as badly as reported:

Alternate boot with hpet=disabled as suggested, but no better results:

I have a box that looks like it's doing the same thing. Unfortunately
for now it's being used to test other things.

But I did do a show-task and see a bunch of D processes. I'll post that
output when I get that box free again.

Just for the heads-up, I'm still suffering from this same illness, and
it seems even worse (big freeze happens earlier) on 2.6.21.3-rt9.

There's no way around. On one box it works flawlessly (desktop,
P4@3.3Ghz) while on the patient one (laptop, core2 T7200) it bricks
silently.

Shrugs:)

Sorry for responding late. To have some idea where the breakage comes
from, can you please try

http://www.tglx.de/projects/hrtimers/2.6.22-rc4/patch-2.6.22-rc4-hrt5.patch

whether it has the same behaviour.

Thanks,

Just built from linux-2.6.22-rc4.tar.bz2, with patch-2.6.22-rc4-hrt5.
All's working apparentely nice on this offending machine (laptop, intel
core2 T7200). In fact, I'm writing this very reply under it and through
ipw3945 wifi module--which never was so pragmatic on -rt2..9 ;)

Nevertheless, this is not preempt-realtime (-rt) is it? And I it never
complained about vanilla.

Is this good news though?

Well, the patch carries the same high resolution timer fixes as -rt, so
I just wanted to exclude those. Thanks for testing.

I'm spinning -rt10 with a couple of fixes. Should be out sometimes
tomorrow. If the problem persists, we need to dig deeper.

Thanks,

Uhoh. I'm sorry to tell, but the problem is still creeping on

Hmm. Does it happen, when you boot with maxcpus=1 on the kernel
commandline ?

I think 2.6.21-rt2 had some apic updates also, (along with hpet updates)
so testing with "noapic" on the command line might be helpful too ..

Thomas,

Yes, "maxcpus=1" seems to keep it running, but then I render my Core2
just half-baked ;)

Daniel,

No, "noapic" does not seem to help any better.

Nope. It's a Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo Si 1520 -- Intel Core2 Duo T7200@2.0Ghz.

Works great with 2.6.21-rt1, and 2.6.22-rc4-hrt5, but that you already
know :)

Yeah, there are Dell ones which have similar or worse symptoms.

Ok. I go back and figure out which differences we have between
2.6.21-rt>8 and the -hrt queue.

Are you sure it's strictly and HRT issue? I didn't see a
!CONFIG_HIGH_RES_TIMERS test ..

The main difference between -rt1 and -rt2 was the update of -hrt, which
not only affects CONFIG_HIGH_RES_TIMERS. There are enough
CONFIG_HIGH_RES_TIMERS=n related changes to clock events and friends as
well.

In deed, FWIW and IIRC, I can confirm that the show-stopper problem was
still present when tried with CONFIG_HIGH_RES_TIMERS not set (=N).

Although I'm still with my fingers crossed, I can tell that 2.6.21.5-rt19
(and -rt20) does behave far better now on the very same box.

I've more than 8 hours up and running now, without a single glimpse of the
bad symptoms, which used to show in a matter of minutes if not earlier
during init time.

Congratulations, -rt is usable again here and that just makes me happier :)

Cheers.
