Hey, this is not "crap" at all. Quite the reverse. I think you may
have hit on the real bug now, and it's possible that the
DEBUG_PAGEALLOC code was hiding it because it was trying to handle the
page fault.

Or something.

Anyway, this time your backtrace is *interesting*. It's showing
something that looks real. Namely "save_xstate_sig" apparently taking
a page fault. And unlike your earlier traces, now all the different
CPU traces show very similar things, which again is something that
makes a lot more sense than your previous lockups have.

That said, maybe I'm just being optimistic, because while the NMI
watchdog messages now look ostensibly much saner, I'm not actually
seeing what's really going on. But at least this time I *could*
imagine that it's something like infinitely taking a page fault in
save_xstate_sig. This is some pretty special code, with the whole FPU
save state handling being one mess of random really subtle issues
with FPU exceptions, page faults, delayed allocation, yadda yadda.

And I could fairly easily imagine endless page faults due to the
exception table, or even endless signal handling loops due to getting
a signal while trying to handle a signal. Both things that would
actually reasonably result in a watchdog.

So I'm adding some x86 FPU save people to the cc.

Can anybody make sense of that backtrace, keeping in mind that we're
looking for some kind of endless loop where we don't make progress?

There's more in the original email (see on lkml if you haven't seen
the thread earlier already), but they look similar with that whole
do_signal -> save_xstate_sig -> do_page_fault thing just on other
CPU's.

DaveJ, do you have the kernel image for this? I'd love to see what the
code is around that "save_xstate_sig+0x81" or around those
__clear_user+0x17/0x36 points...
