Re: Kernel oops+crash on repeated auditd restarts



Finally i found some time and spare server to retest the oops and list_add corruptions i was getting with the 3.x kernels and auditd 2.1.3.

I tested now with gentoo's latest stable 3.2.1-gentoo-r2 and kernel.org's 3.2.9.

Both get the oops/BUG in the same way and after that, they keep pouring list_add corruptions with audit_prune_tre(truncated?) and auditctl as comms.

Since this is not about Gentoo's kernel only, i'll post here the oops in 3.2.9 and also attach some list_add corruptions.

The kernel was compiled with the following DEBUG support (the bolded one were requested by Gentoo's Dev:
CONFIG_ARCH_SUPPORTS_DEBUG_PAGEALLOC=y
CONFIG_SLUB_DEBUG=y
CONFIG_HAVE_DMA_API_DEBUG=y
CONFIG_X86_DEBUGCTLMSR=y
CONFIG_PNP_DEBUG_MESSAGES=y
CONFIG_AIC94XX_DEBUG=y
CONFIG_USB_DEBUG=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_KERNEL=y
CONFIG_SCHED_DEBUG=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_RT_MUTEXES=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_PI_LIST=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_BUGVERBOSE=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_MEMORY_INIT=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_LIST=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_STACKOVERFLOW=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA_TEST=y

I attached the kernel config i used for 3.2.9 to generate this oops and warnings.

From the list_add warnings that come after, out of 805 warnings i processed, after masking with XXXXX the PID and next= values that kept changing in every one, i got 26 types of MD5. I also attached the files relevant as an archive to this email.

The Gentoo bug i opened is sleeping, it seems nobody has the time to at least test to confirm or not the problems i'm seeing (or everybody's thinking that nobody would restart auditd so often, so the bug it's not that serious).

Thank you for your time.
