It was present in 2.6.27-rc6. A day or two later I checked mainline and
it was gone. I will recheck this and notify if needed.

Hi Rafael,
Correct patch is the one attached to bugzilla entry,
not the one you mention.

Yes, it still does this with newest kernel
(9824b8f11373b0df806c135a342da9319ef1d893). At last for me.

not sure if it should be;
From over here, I did a bad install
of isight-firmware-tools, causing hal and udev
to clash. After making sure the package was either
using hal or udev, there is no message of disable irq #23.
If its not too much trouble is there a way to verify that this was
the case, i.g. if udev creates a dev, then hal creates the same device
will this cause ehci_hcd to have messages of this kind? If so
then thats what happened, if not then theres something else causing this.

e1000: prevent corruption of EEPROM/NVM

Andrey reports e1000 corruption, and that a patch in vmware's ESX fixed
it.

The EEPROM corruption is triggered by concurrent access of the EEPROM
read/write. Putting a lock around it solve the problem.

The machine with these symptoms was sent in for service on Friday. I
suspect there may have been dodgy hardware involved on this one. I
think this bug should be closed for the time being. Once I get the
machine back, I'll reopen the bug if I can still reproduce it.

There are really multiple issues touched in report. nmi_watchdog
hangs, rtc device creation, NULL deref...

I've asked Joshua for more information. Since he must to use
netdev tree for a while maybe we could wait 'till next merge
window will be closed and check if nmi_watchdog does work.
So the work in progress.

Just noticed I replied to davem and not to everyone.. so I did some
further hunting.

Okay so e1000e seems to have a problem in this area, that this *DOESN'T* fix.

I've reconstructed my boot timeline from message logs

Sep 3rd, I booted rawhide kernel 2.6.27-0.290.rc5.fc10.i686

I suspended/resume a few times in between with no issues.

Sep 8th I booted my own 2.6.27-rc5 kernel based from
ec0c15afb41fd9ad45b53468b60db50170e22346

This got a corrupted e1000e checksum and every kernel since has.

Dave.

What upstream SHA1 is this based upon?

You didn't read what I wrote earlier, did you? The "HC died" message
should NEVER occur! It doesn't matter what games you play with hal and
udev -- it should NEVER occur. Not ever.

And since the "HC died" is what causes IRQ #23 to be disabled, that
shouldn't happen either.

appologize for not fully understanidng,
I'm just getting confused with why and what is causing this
to occur. The only reason for playing with hal and udev
is to have this message appear, if I leave them out of the picture
the system runs fine.
Anyways, I'm up to trying anything at this point, and again
appologize for causing any heat.

Have you restored the EEPROM contents after it got corrupted for the first
time?

Once the EEPROM contents get corrupted, the card will then be broken
forever even on kernel that gets this fixed one day.

This is pretty serious bug in fact, as it renders hardware of poor users
unusable, and just patching kernel is then not enough to put things back
to shape.

The top priority is to root cause this, so that we can stop the
problem from happening as fast as possible, and I'm still waiting for
the SHA1 ID that was used for the last kernel Dave booted before the
problem occurred which is pretty damn critical for making forward
progress here.

It could even be some PCI or x86 layer change that caused the corruption,
we don't even know yet.

It was exactly 2.6.27-rc5 + Fedora at the time but we rarely touch
these areas, most of the extra code is in other places, and since
people are seeing it on !Fedora
also I would assume it wasn't these.

I think people have seen it on earlier kernels maybe but not sure.

really Intel needs to get a fix of some sort out so we can repair the
hw so we can root cause the probem.

Dave.

So I went through the changes from 2.6.27-rc5 until the SHA1
ID ec0c15afb41fd9ad45b53468b60db50170e22346 and there were
definitely no E1000 or E1000E changes during that time.

Included in there is the HPET revert and other similarly themed
changes.

commit b4609472116bb806a95e98d04767189406c74c70
Author: Linus Torvalds <torv...@linux-foundation.org>
Date: Fri Aug 29 14:38:03 2008 -0700

Revert "x86: fix HPET regression in 2.6.26 versus 2.6.25, check hpet against BAR, v3"

This reverts commit a2bd7274b47124d2fc4dfdb8c0591f545ba749dd.

Some power management related changes stand out slightly:

commit 9d3593574702ae1899e23a1535da1ac71f928042

Date: Tue Sep 2 14:36:13 2008 -0700

and

Author: Rafael J. Wysocki <r...@sisk.pl>
Date: Tue Sep 2 14:36:11 2008 -0700

rtc-cmos: wake again from S5

The rest of the changes in that range look completely benign.

Just verified it is still a problem with 2.6.27-rc7.

The softlockup issue itself is fixed, but there are issues with
nmi_watchdog. I think we should remove the regression and keep the bug
alive to chase the other issues.

Well, for the sake of documentation I'd prefer to close this bug and create a
new non-regression one for the other issues if that's not a problem.

Some recent comments on [1] seem to indicate that this is somehow coupled
into prior problems/panics with Intel graphics.

David, was this also your case, or did the EEPROM got garbled out of a
sudden?
