Since about the time of teh NEWCONS commit, freshly built kernels do not work correctly for me. Symptoms are:
- long delays opening TCP connections (even to localhost) - TCP transmission errors (e.g. fetchmail aborts because of short transfers, could be due to a timeout being triggered) I first noticed this during multi-user startup, since some of the daemons took tens of seconds to start (especially bad is SpamAssasin), instead of fractions of a second. At first I thought this could be caused by testing NEWCONS, but the symptoms of a kernel with SCONS are identical. Kernel configuration and other parameters are unchanged. I do not have time to bisect the commits, but just wanted to ask whether this is a general problem with -CURRENT, or only affects my test system (my local file-, media-, mail-, and web-server). (I might have time to bisect revisions during the week-end, though.) System information: i7-2660, N67 chipset, 24GB RAM, amd64 ZFS only configuration (ZRAID1, 4*2TB) Kernel config is just a stripped down generic (removing all unnecessary devices) with the following KLDs loaded: Id Refs Address Size Name 1 25 0xffffffff80200000 e0efe8 kernel 2 1 0xffffffff8100f000 22dd88 zfs.ko 3 2 0xffffffff8123d000 5b68 opensolaris.ko 4 1 0xffffffff81412000 1478 fdescfs.ko 5 1 0xffffffff81414000 c250 ipfw.ko 6 1 0xffffffff81421000 3923 linprocfs.ko 7 1 0xffffffff81425000 999 linsysfs.ko Kernel based on SVN rev. 258894 works reliably with latest world. The kernel I built after seeing the initial NEWCONS commits (still with SCONS) worked, but shortly thereafter, when I tried NEWCONS, the symptoms started (but persisted after going back to SCONS). I just checked SVN rev 259250 and the problem persists (without NEWCONS configured into the kernel). So my questions are: - is anybody else affected or is this a local problem? - has there been a commit that touched the network stack or might cause the observed delays? Thanks in advance fpr any insight you might be able to offer!
