This bug is specific to x86_64 and i386.

Steps to reproduce is,
running LTP three test cases in sequence on x86 device.
# cd ltp/runtest
# cat syscalls ( only three test case)
open12 open12
madvise06 madvise06
poll02 poll02

as Dan referring to,

LTP is run using '/opt/ltp/runltp -d /scratch -f syscalls', where the
syscalls file has been replaced with three test case names, and
/scratch is an ext4 SATA drive. /scratch is created using 'mkfs -t ext4
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-TOSHIBA_MG03ACA100_37O9KGKWF' and mounted to

Please find full test log,

And you notice dmesg log,
