:I'm getting deadlocks on a kernel from Sep. 24th's sources. I can't seem
:to pinpoint what's causing it (it happens randomly and without notice).
:The machine appears just just freeze with no panic message, no network,
:and I can't even drop to debugger from a serial console. I just wanted
:to share, and was wondering if others were seeing this.
I haven't seen anything similar.
You may have to back-down to older kernels (see if you can reproduce
it with the kernel daily snapshot binaries... kernel only, not a
whole build) and maybe be able to focus in on when the problem started
That might be hard if the deadlock is completely random.
Another possibility is that a hardware issue has developed in your box,
such as a fan failing. My bet is always on software first, though :-)
