iMX6 Kernel Oops in swapper / ktime_get()

Contributor II

Hi, I am seeing occasional kernel oops due to NULL pointer dereference on one of my boards. It happens about once per day, always seems to be related to ktime_get(), and always appears to be in a "swapper" process. Has anyone seen similar on the iMX6Q?

It seems like you have reached the end of memory and have an exception from when the system attempted to swap.

Do you have the swapper turned on?  For a variety of reasons the kernel swapper should be turned off on an embedded system.

My guess is the swapper is turned on and the kernel attempted to swap and it failed.
