since Linux 3.5 I'm seeing these "inconsistent lock state" lockdep
warnings . They show up in 3.6 as well . I was being told that I
may have run out of inode attributes. This may well be the case, but I
cannot reformat the disk right now and will have to live with that warning
a while longer.
I got the warning again today, but 8h later the system hung and eventually
shutdown. The last message from the box was received via netconsole:
XFS: possible memory allocation deadlock in xfs_buf_allocate_memory
This has been reported for 3.2.1, but when the message was printed I
was not around and could not watch /proc/slabinfo.
The last -MARK- message (some kind of heartbeat message from syslog,
printing "MARK" every 5min) has been received 07:55 local time, the
netconsole message above was received 08:09, so two -MARK- messages were
lost. sar(1) stopped recording at 08:05.
These two incidents (the lockdep warning and the final lockup) may be
unrelated (and timestamp-wise, they seem to be), but I thought I'd
better report it.
