Would be great if you were able to get it working again. At least to see
whether the crash happens in the same area (timers). At the moment this
sounds like something in user-space changed in a way that allows it to
mess badly with the kernel. That sounds bad. And if its really somethign
getting done with the timers that leaves a lot to look at.

Title:
  Ubuntu 15.10 Crashing Frequently on EC2 Instances w/ Enhanced
  Networking

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
  Triaged

Bug description:
  Lots of details and history of the problem here:
  https://askubuntu.com/questions/710747/after-upgrading-
  to-15-10-from-15-04-ec2-webservers-have-become-very-unstable

  10 of my webservers have started crashing immediately following the
  15.10 upgrade. As far as what exactly defines a "crash", Instance
  Status Checks fail, and I can no longer SSH to the machine. Background
  daemons running on the system stop responding, and nothing is written
  to the logs.

  After weeks of working with the AWS team, I finally fixed a netconsole
  issue via "echo 7 > /proc/sys/kernel/printk" and got netconsole
  working properly, and finally have a trace:

  I don't have a vmcore at the moment, but I'm trying to get one from
  AWS and should have one in the next couple of days. This is happening
  frequently and repeatedly since I first upgraded to 15.10 on early
  December.
