The bug is close to impossible to reproduce, since it's a hard to hit race. So I could only verify that the kernel/system still boots and did some basic tests - which all passed. ------- Comment From h.carst...@de.ibm.com 2018-04-14 06:43 EDT------- (In reply to comment #14) > I also tried to apply this patch to the 4.13 based 17.10 Artful kernel. > However, I'll have to perform allot of back porting for Artful.

I attached a kernel patch agains vanilla v4.13 that is supposed to fix the bug for this kernel version as well. ** Tags removed: bugnameltc-166421 kernel-da-key severity-high -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1761674 Title: [Ubuntu 16.04] kernel: fix rwlock implementation To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-z-systems/+bug/1761674/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list email@example.com https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
