meta-fsl-arm/linux-rt rcu_preempt stack errors (IMX.6D)

Question asked by Phill Ogden on May 31, 2015
Latest reply on Jun 2, 2015 by igorpadykov

Hi All,

I am attempting to get the rt kernel working on my project, it appears to be throwing stack errors quite frequently. I think the following log is several errors, but is the most common error I get.

The hardware design is based on the SabreSD reference design, I am using a dual core chip, and have linked in custom drivers for hardware, these are denoted by the `lx_` in the module name.

The stack errors occur while running a QT program with a full GUI and several hardware interaction operations + threads.

 

The Kernel is built using Yocto and the meta-fsl-arm recipes.

 

Basically, looking for some help debugging this. I don't have a lot of Linux development under my belt. Have I missed an RT config file/setting during compile time? Am I doing things wrong in my QT application?
