           Summary: HTB causes machine lockups
    Kernel Version: 2.4.26
            Status: NEW
          Severity: high
             Owner: acme@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
         Submitter: alchemyx@xxxxxxxxxxxx


Distribution: PLD Linux 1.1 with 2.4.26 vanilla kernel
Hardware Environment: 2x Xeon 2.4 GHz, 1 GB of ram, 2x e1000 NICs
Software Environment: iproute2-2.4.7.ss020116
Problem Description:

I have some network traffic shaping rules used on a Linux box. For example I
have hundreds of them on eth1. I am using HTB in all cases (sometimes attaching
SFQ to HTB rules). Everything works fine, until I issue:

tc qdisc del dev eth1 root

Which causes a machine lockup. Sometimes it happens day after day, but sometimes
once a month. There are no traces in logs, no oopses, and so on. Machine just
freezes (you see login on your screen, but can't type anything, can't ping that
machine, ctrl-alt-del or sysrq doesn't work). Problem was on kernels from 2.4.21
up to 2.4.26. Haven't tried 2.4.27 and 2.6.x on that box yet.

Steps to reproduce:
Hard to tell really. You need to set up a script creating hunderds of HTB rules
and regenerating them every (let say) 15 minutes, issuing 'tc qdisc del dev
ethX' everytime.
