I doubt this was already resolved.

It seems that buffers only make their way into the BufferManager via SERVER_REGISTER_BUFFER, and this is the only place which uses that command, so something must be adding a kernel buffer to BBuffer.

Since video plays just fine in WebPositive, it must be something MediaPlayer-specific. And indeed, it looks like MediaPlayer registers a buffer based on a BBitmap area:

So that seems to imply BBitmaps are getting created in kernel space? That seems strange.

Oh, I see; it's probably due to B_BITMAP_WILL_OVERLAY.

comment:3 Changed 11 days ago by waddlesplash

It looks like the intel_extreme GART allocator, which is what allocate_overlay uses to get memory, does not set any protections at all:

That usually means it gets B_READ_AREA | B_WRITE_AREA. So I suppose we need to set_area_protection(area_for(...)...) at the end of that function.

Strange, from the screenshot, "Audio Mixer control" would be the audio mixer thread

comment:5 Changed 11 days ago by waddlesplash

I see that, but I don't know what else to say. I tested playing audio in MediaPlayer and video in WebPositive and both worked just fine (on VESA driver, no overlay.)

comment:6 Changed 11 days ago by waddlesplash

Hmm, it might be the HDA driver. I'll take a look.

comment:7 Changed 11 days ago by waddlesplash

Nope, the HDA driver works just fine here and doesn't trigger any panics. So I'll go try hardware overlays, then.

I can't find a way to reproduce this. If anyone else can, a syslog of the system before MediaPlayer was opened would be very helpful.
