Photo of monitor displaying Kernel messages like call trace

This report is a follow up for my message sent to the mailing list [1].

Unfortunately the Bugzilla instance of Linux [2] is still down due to the security breach in August and therefore I am reporting this issue here in the FreeDesktop Bugzilla [3].

Having a lot of windows open using the Awesome window manager [4] the X server crashed printing the following to the monitor. Please see the attached image for the complete message.

        Pid: 1503, comm: Xorg Tainted: G           C 3.0.0-1-amd64 #1 LENOVO INVALID/Bali

        RIP […] shmem_truncate_range+0x45c/0x6a1
         RSP <ffff88010c209cf8>

Unfortunately for debugging this issue this is the first time it happened and the issue is not reproducible.

Debian Wheezy/testing is running on this system with Linux 3.0.0-3 [5] and the (non-free) firmware for the graphics card.

There is no direct evidence that this is related to drm/radeon. The oops happens in the shmdt system call, most likely called by the X server MIT-SHM extension code.

Unless you can also reproduce an oops with the MIT-SHM extension disabled (add -extension MIT-SHM to the X server command line, verify with xdpyinfo|grep SHM), I'm afraid you'll have to report it to the kernel bugzilla or maybe the linux-kernel mailing list for now.

Or against the Debian kernel package.

I can’t remember having seen this, so I close this as invalid.
