[dm-devel] Re: 2.6.24.2: 4KSTACKS + pcdrw + dm + mount -> stack overflow: ide-cd related? dm-related?



On 24 Feb 2008, nix esperi org uk outgrape:

It is not preempt-specific, nor dm-specific. Nor it is very easy to
capture tracebacks of: even netconsole generally gives up when faced
with a string of recursive tracebacks blurring past forever at blinding
speed.

But while I'd normally blame pktcdvd there's only one pktcdvd function
in these tracebacks (pkt_open) and it's not got a significant stack
footprint.

More notable is a great stack of mutual recursion between
dm_bio_destructor() and the CDROM code: it seems to burn most of the
stack on this sort of thrashing. Here's one of those tracebacks again:

Just looking for `dm_' in there should point out something odd.  (Of
course dm is just acting on behalf of others here, so it may be that the
IDE CDROM code is doing something demented: in which case why does this
only stack-overrun if I mount /dev/pktcdvd/cdrw, and not /dev/cdrw?
For that matter, why is dm getting involved at all? This CD-RW isn't
dm-managed in any way, shape or form...)
