unhandled page fault in runtime_loader
|Reported by:||donn||Owned by:||nobody|
Another entry in the parade of bugs that show up while self-compiling GHC (Glasgow Haskell Compiler.) I associate this with enthusiastic memory allocation by GHC, using mmap() and munmap() to get megabyte-aligned blocks. Eventually things start failing, with "Thread killed", but the same jobs will eventually work. reboot helps.
Attached trace, showing (I think) runtime_loader getting into trouble while trying to set up heap.
I can more or less duplicate this problem (haven't checked to see if I get the same trace.) Jessica H doesn't get kernel crashes, but does get inconsistent failures.
