Bug#555526: linux-image-2.6.26-2-686: 2.6.26-19lenny2 with serial console hangs on boot
 
Package: linux-image-2.6.26-2-686
Version: 2.6.26-19lenny2
Severity: normal

Hello,

I upgraded from (I think) 2.6.26-19lenny1 to 2.6.26-19lenny2
with the latest security update and I found my system would
hang during the boot. By 'hang' I mean that the boot
process seems to stop -- no further messages on the
console and the network never came up.

The system would not respond to ctrl-alt-del but does
respond to the <alt>-<sysrq>-cmd keys.


The last messages on the console before hang were:

ide_generic: please use "probe_mask=0x3f" module parameter for probing all legacy ISA IDE ports
ide_generic: I/O resource 0x1F0-0x1F7 not free.
ide_generic: I/O resource 0x170-0x177 not free.


I tried various combinations of things like "probe_mask=0x3f" and
"ide.probe_mask=0x3f" and "probe_mask=0x00" and "probe_mask=0x30" on
the kernel command line and nothing helped.

I also moved the hd to a different box (the one I'm reporting
this on now) and got the same behavior. (Both before and afger
rebuilding the initramfs.)


The grub stanza that causes the hang reads:

title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.26-2-686
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.26-2-686 root=/dev/mapper/vg00-root ro console=tty0 console=ttyS0,9600n8
initrd /initrd.img-2.6.26-2-686


The system boots successfully after changing this to:

title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.26-2-686
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.26-2-686 root=/dev/mapper/vg00-root ro
initrd /initrd.img-2.6.26-2-686


(But then of course I don't have a serial console, afaict.)

Would you be able to test the 2.6.26-19lenny1 kernel to verify that it
did work? I don't see anything in 2.6.26-19lenny2 that could obviously
cause this, so it would be good to confirm that we're looking in the
right place.

I suspect the problem may not be in the kernel. Now that
I've had time to think it seems significant that once I removed
the serial console kernel parameters the system, eventually,
dropped me into single user mode due to an fsck error.
I was interacting with the the box via vga not the
serial port. Though the vga gets kernel messages
and eventually gets a getty it seems it does not
get any of the regular boot messages. So that's
where the "hang" is.

I'd like to keep this report and send is somewhere,
as an enhancement if nothing else. It sure would
be nice if there was either a way to have whichever
kernel parameter console=foo that happens to be
the one being used actually work as the console
throughout the whole boot process. (Grub does this,
which probably contributed to my confusion because
I was interacting with grub just fine.)

Whoops. Sorry. Hit the send button by accident.

Absent that at warning would be nice. Perhaps the
kernel could emit something to those "consoles"
not available to init noting that the action is
happening elsewhere.

I would also like to see some more documentation.
I can't figure out just how it is that init
"gets" the console it does. (I suspect it takes
the last "console=foo".)

Thanks for the help.
