Linux airraid 2.6.25-RC5 #2 SMP Wed Mar 12 09:50:59 CDT 2008 x86_64
x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux


100% reproducible spin lock lockup on x86_64, 16GB to 32GB RAM, Centos 5.1
Tyan 3992 or SuperMicro H8DMi-2 motherboard, dual 2222 3.0GHz opterons.
Dual LSI-8888ELP SAS controllers (MegaRaid) into 32 external Seagate
500GB ES 7200.10 sata drives, and 8 internal Seagate 1000GB ES 7200.11
drives.
All drives in 4 drive raid-0 sets. ShiftGen is a small disk write utility.
XFS xfsprogs-2.9.4-1.el5.centos

The system handles 1,410MB/Sec write rates (256KB stripes, 256KB writes)
Under 2.6.23 without major issues (soft timeouts reported by the LSI).
Under 2.6.24-0 and 2.6.24-3 the system spin lock lockups in XFS
with 5 minutes. The disk partitions are corrupted (access to them under
other kernels
panics and shuts down the partitions). A complete mkfs.xfs is required
to "fix" the partitions.
Without spinlock_debug enabled, the system just dies (at about 800MB/Sec
write rates).
~7KB of /var/log/message data is available on request.

Note: on the Tyan 3992, they system corrupts kernel memory at those
write rates :-)
The SuperMicro does ok. 2.6.23 lives, 2.6.22 locks up without
spinlock_debug, but
functions fine (no reported errors) with spinlock_debug enabled.
2.6.23 also has spinlock_debug enabled.
