BUG() in e1000 driver (2.4.20-pre7)

BUG() in e1000 driver (2.4.20-pre7)

Post by Ben Greea » Tue, 17 Sep 2002 10:10:07

Earlier I had generated a similar crash in a NAPI-fied driver.  I
was able to reproduce it in the default e1000 driver in 2.4.20-pre7
as well.  To cause the problem, I send bi-directional tcp/ip traffic
(240Mbps send, 240Mbps receive on two ports on the same machine).  It
crashes in around 30 minutes, after about 43,469,910,000 bytes in this case.

This is not a stock kernel:  I have some small tweaks to the tcp/ip stack
to allow me to send traffic to myself over the interfaces, so it could be
my fault somehow.  I have yet to reproduce this on other machines running
the tulip driver (10/100) though...

Trying to reproduce on 2.4.20-pre4 now...

Machine:  dual AMD 2Ghz-equiv, Intel pro/1000 MT nics.
kernel: 2.4.20-pre7
  + send-to-self patch I wrote
  + pktgen patch (happens when module is loaded or not)
  * Loaded e1000 driver with TxDescriptors=4096 RxDescriptors=1024

ksymoops 2.4.4 on i686 2.4.20-pre7.  Options used
      -V (default)
      -k /proc/ksyms (default)
      -l /proc/modules (default)
      -o /lib/modules/2.4.20-pre7/ (default)
      -m /boot/System.map-2.4.20-pre7 (default)

Warning: You did not tell me where to find symbol information.  I will
assume that the log matches the kernel and modules that are running
right now and I'll use the default options above for symbol resolution.
If the current kernel and/or modules do not match the log, you can get
more accurate output by telling me the kernel version and where to find
map, modules, ksyms etc.  ksymoops -h explains the options.

1. 2.4.20 e100/e1000 drivers and mii-[tool,diag]

The mii-tool program does not work with e100 and e1000 drivers that
comes with the 2.4.20 kernel. With out this how do you set the interface
speed when you comple these built into the kernel?
