Description

A self-compiled vanilla Linux 3.12.0 (with only a non-relevant patch), containing batman-adv 2013.4.0, network coding enabled, running in an environment with several batman-adv nodes in range, threw the attached message.

Another user's Arch linux kernel paniced completely. Digital photo of panic message available on request.

#1 Updated by Martin Hundebøll over 5 years ago

Hi,

Thanks for reporting this!

I tried to recreate this issue in my virtual setup with five (smp) nodes running Arch Linux on a 3.12.1 kernel:

 N1   ----   N2   ----  N3
   \         /\         /
    \-  N3 -/   \- N4 -/

All nodes have batman-adv with NC enabled and lockup_detector compiled in:

  root@n1 ~ # zgrep -E "LOCKUP_DETECTOR|BATMAN_ADV_NC" /proc/config.gz
  CONFIG_BATMAN_ADV_NC=y
  CONFIG_LOCKUP_DETECTOR=y
  CONFIG_HARDLOCKUP_DETECTOR=y

So can you please try if this issue persists in kernel version 3.12.1-ARCH and, if so, give some information about topology and version information on the other nodes? When did the panic (and/or) lockdep issue show up and was the network under load or not?

Thanks again,
Martin
