Hi Ingo, Thomas,

When kernel-2.6.24.x is compiled with

CONFIG_IRQBALANCE=y,

and heavy LAN (outbound) traffic, I experience LAN dying due to
IRQ# masked at the IO_APIC (bit 16 is 1, for the corresponding irq
vector) (SMP x86_32, AMD X2), as described in my previous post:

http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/3/25/165

and links to previous posts there in. When

CONFIG_IRQBALANCE is not set

I am not able to reproduce the problem. That makes me think that
there is a race/bug somewhere in the irq balancing code that
leaves (rarely) the corresponding IRQ# masked at the IO-APIC.

Any comments, suggestions, patches?

Additional info?

Thank you in advance for your answer.

Regards

Marin Mitov
