Re: yet another kernel panic

From: Matthew Dillon <dillon@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
Date: Sun, 29 Aug 2004 09:47:43 -0700 (PDT)

:i have a build of 1.1-current from around 19th of august (old, but maybe the
:bug is still present today) and experienced a kernel panic, was running
:xorg with kde (kdebase, kdelibs, kdegames and thats about it), firefox,
:konsole, xmms, xterm and perhaps another app or two. the kernel panic
:happened when i tried running top (weird) ... the dump is located at:
:i also have a backtrace if its usefull:
:#6  0xc01c97b8 in fill_eproc (p=0xceff8200, ep=0xcf70f81c) at
:#7  0xc01c990d in sysctl_out_proc (p=0xceff8200, td=0xc9a5db80,
:req=0xcf70fb50, doingzomb=0)
:    at /usr/src/sys/kern/kern_proc.c:461
:#8  0xc01c9baa in sysctl_kern_proc (oidp=0xc03fe3c0, arg1=0x0, arg2=0,

    Ok, here's a patch to try.  fill_eproc() checks for p_stats == NULL
    but it looks like I don't NULL it out when I deallocate the process's
    kernel stack (which is where the stats are located).  If a process is
    left a zombie long enough the kernel's kstack cache might cause the
    stack to be deallocated, leading to a panic in the eproc code.
