Subject: Hang / zombie process from Xarray page-fault conversion (bisected)
Date: Thu, 7 Mar 2019 22:16:17 -0800
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi Willy,

We're seeing a case where RocksDB hangs and becomes defunct when
trying to kill the process. v4.19 succeeds and v4.20 fails. Robert was
able to bisect this to commit b15cd800682f "dax: Convert page fault
handlers to XArray".

I see some direct usage of xa_index and wonder if there are some more
pmd fixups to do?

Other thoughts?
