Ok, I did some digging. Since people also see this bug on Ultra1, it
must be esp-specific. Most recent change to esp.c dates to February
2006, all other changes are over a year old, so it's pretty unlikely
that they are the cause of this problem. The recent change , on the
other hand, looks pretty suspicious to me, since it changes the locking
order. I've built a kernel with this change reverted, and was not able
to crash the machine by running two concurrent loops of
unpacking/removing the kernel tree for an hour. I'd appreciate if you
could test this kernel, it is available at . By the way, this problem
has been also reported to kernel's bugzilla
as bug 6344 .
Thanks. But I cannot try on my SS20 (HyperSPARC) due to a bug in
initramfs-tools (HyperSPARC cannot use a ramfs to boot). Can you send to
me a patch file with your fixes ?
