Hi, Henrique

rsp->gp_start and rsp->jiffies_stall should already set before we start
check stall for this gp, but the INFO show that we have a current
jiffies which bigger then rsp->jiffies_stall but equal to rsp->gp_start,
really strange...

Could you please have a try on the latest kernel and confirm whether
this issue still exist?

BTW:
	Is this stall info comes from a virtual machine?

Regards,
Michael Wang
