[Xen-devel] DomU lockups after resume from S3 on Core i5 processors
I'm experiencing very reproducible DomU lockups that occur after I resume the system from an S3 sleep. Strangely this seem to happen only on my Core i5 systems (tested on two different machines), but not on older Core 2 Duo systems. Usually this causes the apps (e.g. Firefox) running in DomUs to become unresponsive, but sometimes I see that some very limited functionality of the app is still available (e.g. I can open/close Tabs in Firefox, but cannot do much anything more). Also, when I log in to the DomU via xm console, I usually can see the login prompt, can enter the username, but then the console hangs. I tried to attach to such a hanged DomU using gdbserver-xen, but when I subsequently try to attach to the server from gdb (via the target 127.0.0.1:9999 command), my gdb segfaults (how funny!). I'm running Xen 3.4.3, and fairly recent pvops0 kernel in DomU. In Dom0 I run 2.6.34-xenlinux kernel (opensuse patches), but I doubt it is relevant in any way. This seems like a scheduling problem, and, because it seems to affect Core i5 processors, but not Core 2 Duos, it might have something to do with Hyperthreading perhaps? joanna.
