Hm. Well, if it fails the second time then I guess I'll just add a sysctl to disable the fix. But let's try to get a crashdump anyway :-) > > Just for the record, the easiest way to make iwn firmware panic > > is to enter ddb (ctrl-alt-esc), wait five seconds and exit it > > ("c<enter>"). > > Does that process yield useful information?

Well, it triggers the iwn firmware panic, which in turn triggers the code I've attached, which apparently causes kernel panic. But I cannot guarantee that it _will_ trigger the problem. > If so, I can try that soonish (e.g., en route home today, once I've > boarded the train -- vs. while I'm still on my bike :-}). Thanks. Even just replying to emails whilst on bike is impressive, especially with mutt. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
