Description

Hello,

Yesterday I decided to "upgrade" my Dragonfly system from the Developer
branch (2005-12-14) to the new 1.4 branch. This didn't work as I hoped.
The thing is that I don't have the time to analyse the problem (I will
rather switch back to the working version), I only post here a few
things I noticed.

The hardware is a Proliant 7000 with 4 cpu-s.

The symptoms:

- there were kernel panics, complaining about a page fault
- I saw a message: "clist_alloc_cblocks: M_NOWAIT malloc failed, trying
M_WAITOK"
- also saw this one: '[diagnostic] cache_lock: blocked on 0x3... "usr"'
'[diagnostic] cache_lock: unblocked usr'

The version I used is the 1.4 slip, cvsupped around 7th January afternoon.

Sorry, I cannot provide you more data as I need to find a workaround
ASAP, also the server is located in a weird environment where I have
little physical access, so I can't go there very frequently to reboot...

I hope the very few details I sent gave some ideas about the problem, if
so could you please share those with me?

Thank you,
David Beck.
