We are seeing a periodic rcu stall/hang, where sometimes we can get a backtrace. Most often, the system just hangs. Please advise.

RCU-relevant config options:

(CONFIG_PREEMPT_RCU=y
# CONFIG_PREEMPT_NONE is not set
# CONFIG_PREEMPT_VOLUNTARY is not set
CONFIG_PREEMPT=y

Hi Igor,

Applying MX_SMP ERRATA, including 751472 did not seem to make a difference. Because this is very rare, perf_fuzzer is used to expedite a similar reproduction of the problem. I can still reproduce, and the events leading up to the stall are usually:

- Unhandled arm-pmu interrupt (IRQ 24) which is subsequently disabled.

- Then, one of the cores seems to go out to lunch. It completely stops taking interrupts, and eventually there is an RCU stall.

After this, CPU3 seems wedged, and is not taking ANY interrupts.

Thoughts?

And as an additional note, I can reproduce the rcu stall more consistently when disabling cpuidle state1 on all cores (eliminating timer IPI's). This results in a somewhat consistent rcu stall, which seems to be reported elsewhere.

Hi Todd

could you try to reproduce issue on NXP i.MX6Q Sabre SD reference board with

I don't have one readily available. However, I was able to attach a jtag probe, and found two CPU's in WFI (normal), but one stuck here:

I think we are running into a similar issue: intermittent CPU stall with a similar backtrace:

-> Did you ever resolve this?

It appears that applying the errata within u-boot code did resolve the issue. Later versions of u-boot separate SMP and non-SPM options, and it is easy to not apply the correct errata (which must be applied in u-boot).

CONFIG_ARM_ERRATA_751472

CONFIG_ARM_ERRATA_761320

CONFIG_ARM_ERRATA_794072

CONFIG_ARM_ERRATA_854369

HI Todd,

Could you please share more information about, what's the fix done for this issue .

We are using 5.4.70  and I checked my u-boot it  has all the ARM errata related fixes, but we still see random RCU stalls the pattern look same as your.

could you please share more details , highly appreciate your Help.

 

Thanks and Regards

Terry

reason may be that not all arm errata mentioned above were implemented or correctly integrated.

Other reason may be in gpu driver, one can test without gpu (and update to latest nxp linux if this is the cause).

Hi Todd

what bsp used in the case, usually such errors happen due to arm errata, so

one can check if there are #define CONFIG_ARM_ERRATA:

mx6_common.h\configs\include - uboot-imx - i.MX U-Boot 

recommended to try nxp linux from Code Aurora git repositories 

linux-imx - i.MX Linux kernel 

Best regards
igor
