#1512 closed bug (fixed)

deadlock after clicking on Deskbar

Reported by: marcusoverhagen Owned by: axeld
Priority: critical Milestone: R1
Component: System/Kernel Version: R1/pre-alpha1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Has a Patch: no Platform: All


After clicking on Deskbar (which doesn't react), the mouse continues to work for about 1 second, then everything freezes reproduceable.

Occured with hrev22394

PANIC: keyboard requested halt.

hrev22392 works fine here (hrev22393 and hrev22394 don't seem to change anything important). No AHCI here, though, so it might be related to that.

comment:2 Changed 12 years ago by marcusoverhagen

This might be an SMP problem. This is a core 2 duo sytem, running at 2.4 GHz. I "downclocked" it to 900 MHz and now I'm able to use Deskbar for a few seconds, can even run the About app. However, it deadlocks soon, with the same semaphore.

Can you reproduce this with GCC 2.95.3? Also, can you provide a stack trace from the deskbar thread?

comment:4 Changed 12 years ago by marcusoverhagen

I couldn't exaclty reproduce it. A similar deadlock occured now, but the thread that acquired the semaphore seems to be gone. Please see attached logfile.

I think I got it reproduced now. This time the Deskbar's menu tracking thread was the holder of sem 4. See attached logfile.

comment:6 Changed 12 years ago by umccullough

I'm guessing #1509 is a duplicate of this.

comment:7 Changed 12 years ago by bonefish

According to deadlock_menutracking.txt the thread is creating the kernel stack area for an new thread. In insert_area() it apparently accesses invalid memory. If vm.cpp was compiled with gcc 4 and no debugging the instruction would try to access vm_area::base with %edx (0xe8458d00) being the area pointer.

deadlock3.txt is interesting too: The thread that holds the kernel address space lock still lives -- it is still queued in the semaphore -- but it's no longer in the thread hash table. So it is apparently in the last phase of its death. Probably it is currently deleting its kernel stack area and accesses invalid memory. This would at least allow for the same explanation as in the other case.

So, supposedly the area/address space structures become invalid at some point. Given that it doesn't seem to be reproducible on a single CPU, a SMP-only race condition seems likely.

Browsing through some code, I found at least one of those, though it seems a little unlikely to be that well reproducible: In thread_exit2() we call put_death_stack(), but don't hold (and cannot hold) the thread spinlock. Between releasing the spinlock in put_death_stack() and reacquiring it in thread_exit2() another thread could grab our still used death stack.

comment:8 Changed 12 years ago by bonefish

I've fixed the death stack issue in hrev22403. I don't think it's likely that this was the cause of the problem, but it wouldn't harm to check.

comment:9 Changed 12 years ago by marcusoverhagen

This problem is not reproduceable with GCC 2.95.3

comment:11 Changed 11 years ago by aldeck

I just experienced a full system deadlock, fresh start, on my first click on the leaf menu. Hitting F12 to KDL worked. It never happened to me, seems hard to reproduce.

Since i don't really know what to do in kdl, and vmware suspend works thanks to Ingo (#985), i've put the vmdk and vmss here : , i never tried to move a vmss though, we'll see if it works. If if you can resume the image on your side and you think it's another bug, just tell :)

comment:12 in reply to:  11 Changed 11 years ago by aldeck

Ohh, and as you might find it's disk related, i must add it was a first boot (freshly built image).

comment:13 Changed 11 years ago by jackburton

Since this bug doesn't show up with the "default" compiler, has it really have to be targeted to R1/alpha ?

comment:14 in reply to:  13 Changed 11 years ago by aldeck

Replying to jackburton:

Since this bug doesn't show up with the "default" compiler, has it really have to be targeted to R1/alpha ?

Hmm, not really sure it is the same bug, but it happened to me with GCC 2.

comment:15 Changed 11 years ago by anevilyak

I just had this bug happen to me on gcc2 with a single non-HT CPU, fyi. Though the rw_lock seems to have been renamed in the meantime. If I see it again I'll try and gather more detailed data on it, at first I thought it might be related to swap and just rebooted to try disabling swap and seeing if it worked, and I haven't been able to duplicate it again since, with or without.

comment:16 Changed 11 years ago by axeld

If you can reproduce this, please attach an up-to-date backtrace. Also, it would be helpful if you tried removing the FireWire driver (in case you have FireWire hardware as Marcus has).

comment:17 Changed 11 years ago by anevilyak

I haven't seen this one in quite a while now here, I may have disabled my FW controller though. Will check later.

comment:18 Changed 11 years ago by anevilyak

OK...with my FW controller enabled, I now hang when the cursor appears on the desktop, though I can still enter KDL. Interestingly it appears to be an interrupt sharing problem, as the last few messages in syslog are:

More than 99-188498180nterrupts of vector 3 are unhandled

Along with some complaints by the radeon driver. Not sure what broke with the dprintf that's used for that message though, I thought it used to say 99% correctly. In any case that appears to be unrelated to this ticket.

comment:19 Changed 11 years ago by anevilyak

I can't seem to duplicate this any more, and I've actively tried to abuse deskbar during startup and various other high activity situations. Unless someone else still sees it, I think it might meanwhile have been fixed.

comment:20 Changed 11 years ago by stippi

Since this appears so hard to reproduce (I never encountered it myself), it should probably be at least moved out of the alpha/1 target.

I just saw this one again while messing with of its teams seemed to be unkillable. Dropped to KDL and found the following:

I find it interesting that this particular one is marked as user_stack area -1, which seems incorrect.

The other 3 threads waiting on read locks belong to ProcessController, and were me attempting to invoke its context menu. Backtrace of 164512:

No news for the last 6 years here, is it ok to assume this is fixed now?

comment:24 Changed 4 years ago by DarkmatterVale

I am running hrev48487 and I do not see this error at all.

I would assume as well that this has been fixed.

comment:25 Changed 4 years ago by mmu_man

I'd vote for closing it as well.
