new panic, null block device
Today while starting an anita run I got the following after it
finished the install phase:
All selected distribution sets unpacked successfully.
Making device nodes ...
kernel: supervisor trap page fault, code=0
Stopped in pid 0.39 (system) at c08682f1: movl 4(%edx),%edx
No backtrace unfortunately (would be nice if anita could arrange that)
so I don't know how it got here, but I did figure out what happened.
The crash is in vn_lock. vn_lock does
and within wapbl_vphaswapbl(), which is inline, we find another call
to wapbl_vptomp(), which contains:
if (vp->v_type == VBLK)
mp = vp->v_specmountpoint;
It seems that v_specmountpoint is actually a macro that expands to
and it crashed because sn_dev was null.
I have no idea how this can happen but I'm pretty sure I've not seen
this crash before, either myself or on the lists or in the bug
database, so I figured I ought to share it... anyone have any theories?
