Default Bug#553596: linux-image-2.6.31-1-amd64: seems to run normally, but then suddenly hangs

Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.31-1
Severity: normal

Hi,

since 2.6.30 (Debian releases 2.6.30-5, 2.6.30-6, 20.6.30-8 and 2.56.30-1)
I am having issues with the kernel on this system:
The kernel boots up normally, runs for a while (sometimes up to 4 or 5 hours)
and then suddenly stops responding.
It does not react to any input, is not reachable via the network, ...
The only action it (sometimes) accepts, is SysRq+B.

Additional information:
* Kernel 2.6.26 and earlier do not show this issue
* Syslog does not contain any entries around the time the system stops responding.
* The CPU belongs to those with the Dual-CPU bug reported for 2.6.30-5.
So, I naturally supposed this to be the cause, but even later releases
show te issues
* kernel command line contains "noapic" (required for stable operation for ages)
* kernel disables IRQ #7 after some time
(with older, working kernels as well with the new ones that fail)


If you need any more info, please tell, and I wil ltry to gather it.

Thanks for maintaining the Linux kernel in debian
Peter

Hi,
The next release of Debian (6.0, code name Squeeze) will be based
on 2.6.32. Please test the current 2.6.32 from unstable and tell
us whether the problem persists. If so, we should report it upstream
to the kernel.org developers.

The 2.6.32 kernel is available from packages.debian.org and can
be installed in both Debian stable, testing and unstable
installations.

Thanks,
Moritz
