From: Matthias Drochner <>
Subject: PR/38989 CVS commit: src/sys/uvm
Date: Thu, 26 Feb 2009 18:18:14 +0000 (UTC)

 Module Name:   src
 Committed By:  drochner
 Date:          Thu Feb 26 18:18:14 UTC 2009
 Modified Files:
        src/sys/uvm: uvm_page.c
 Log Message:
 -fix two conditions where PQ_FREE was still/already set while the page
  was not anymore/yet on the freelist and uvm_fpageqlock was not held
 -clear PQ_FREE while the page is in the works of pageidlezero
 This avoids that the DMA memory allocator (pglistalloc) grabs a page
 which is not on the freelist, leading to a diagnostic panic (with DEBUG)
 or freelist corruption. (mostly on X server activation after a VT
 switch or suspend/resume because this can allocate megabytes of AGP
 This might fix PR port-i386/38989 by Alan Barrett (in case this was
 a multiprocessor).
