I started a kernel bisect between v3.12 final and v3.13-rc1. The kernel bisect will require testing of about 7-10 test kernels. I built the first test kernel, up to the following commit: 5cbb3d216e2041700231bcfc383ee5f8b7fc8b74 The test kernel can be downloaded from:

Tested this kernel. It is NOT working, it has the issue. Extract of console log: [...] Linux version 3.12.0-031200-generic (jsalisbury@gomeisa) (gcc version 4.6.3 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.6.3-1ubuntu5) ) #201402101715 SMP Thu Feb 13 14:58:01 UTC 2014 [...] [ 42.455969] scsi4: error handler thread

Thanks for testing and the update. I'm actually going to restart the bisect to just go through the ~drivers/scsi subsystem. That should speed up the process considerably. I'll build the next test kernel and post it shortly. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of

I built the next test kernel, up to the following commit: 53151bbb83f11b358ac94eddd81347c581dc51ea This kernel is from a new bisect, which will only bisect through the scsi directory. The test kernel can be downloaded from: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~jsalisbury/lp1276705 Can you test that kernel

None of them worked. All had the same issue. Tested: * v3.13-rc3 * v3.13-rc2 * v3.13-rc1 (http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.13-rc1-trusty/) -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Kernel Packages, which is subscribed to linux in Ubuntu.

Can you confirm the bug does not exists in the 3.12 final kernel: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.12-saucy/ If that is the case, we can bisect between v3.12 final and v3.13-rc1. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Kernel Packages, which is

I booted kernel with following common option : ro console=tty0 console=ttyS1,57600. When booted with rootdelay, it's rootdelay=45. The result are the following: * 3.13.0-7-generic, rootdelay = error * 3.13.0-7-generic, no rootdelay = Ok * 3.6, rootdelay = Ok * 3.12, rootdelay = Ok, tested

Thanks for all the testing. So it sounds like this bug was introduced in the 3.13 kernel. In order to bisect, we need to narrow down further and identify which v3.13 release candidate introduced the regression. However, it might be good to first test the latest mainline kernel to see if this
