Now, spending some time with cores and adding a bunch of
extra CTRs, I have a sequence of events that lead to the
panic. In short, the bug is in the callout system. It seems
to be not relevant to the callout_async_drain, at least for
now. The transition to READ lock unmasked the problem, that's
why NetflixBSD 10 doesn't panic.

The panic requires heavy contention on the TCP info lock.

[CPU 1] the callout fires, tcp_timer_keep entered
[CPU 1] blocks on INP_INFO_RLOCK(&V_tcbinfo);
[CPU 2] schedules the callout
[CPU 2] tcp_discardcb called
[CPU 2] callout successfully canceled
[CPU 2] tcpcb freed
[CPU 1] unblocks... panic

When the lock was WLOCK, all contenders were resumed in a
sequence they came to the lock. Now, that they are readers,
once the lock is released, readers are resumed in a "random"
order, and this allows tcp_discardcb to go before the old
running callout, and this unmasks the panic.

 Highly interesting.  I should be able to reproduce that (will be useful
for testing the corresponding fix).

 Finally, I was able to reproduce it (without glebius fix).   The trick
was to really lower TCP keep timer expiration:

$ sysctl -a | grep tcp.keep
net.inet.tcp.keepidle: 7200000
net.inet.tcp.keepintvl: 75000
net.inet.tcp.keepinit: 75000
net.inet.tcp.keepcnt: 8
$ sudo bash -c "sysctl net.inet.tcp.keepidle=10 && sysctl
net.inet.tcp.keepintvl=50 && sysctl net.inet.tcp.keepinit=10"
net.inet.tcp.keepidle: 7200000 -> 10
net.inet.tcp.keepintvl: 75000 -> 50
net.inet.tcp.keepinit: 75000 -> 10

 Note: It will certainly close all your ssh connections to the tested

 Now I will test in order:

#1. glebius fix

#2. rss extra fix

#3. rrs TCP Timer cleanup

please see also https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=210884

 My tests result so far:

#1. r302350:  First glebius TCP timer fix:  No more TCP timer kernel
panic during 48h under 200k TCP query per second load.

 Sadly I was unable to reproduce the issue described here:

panic: bogus refcnt 0 on lle 0xfffff80004608c00

#2. r303098:  Got all kernel callout changes since r302350, (updates on
callout code are indeed always full of surprises):

 No kernel panic either.

 Still to test:

#3. rss extra fix (if still relevant now)

#4. rrs TCP Timer cleanup:

 My 2 cents.


You should also check for memory leaks using "vmstat -m" .
