System reboot caused by RCU warning

Question asked by Richard Li on Oct 30, 2016

My custom imx6q board  always reboot when running a long time LTP test.

hardware: imx6q with 1GHz,1G ddr3

kernel: Linux 3.0.35_4.1.0


After running a long time LTP test, such as 4 hours, the system always reboot caused by RCU warning.

I have no idea what caused the problem, kernel bug or ddr parameter?


By the way, the ddr3 parameter is calibrated with ddr_stress_tester by ourselves.


Does any one can help me?
