Description Ben Gamari 2008-12-11 17:38:53 UTC
UXA has a tendency to kill the X server while drawing due to a failed assertion in intel_batch_emit_dword. It seems this usually (always?) happens in uxa_fill_region_solid. The grav screensaver in xscreensavers seems to have a knack for triggering the crash.

Here's the interesting part of the backtrace,

Fix for review posted to the mailing list:

commit 5e0a99e274cbe1aa661a53f96a3a57cd44dde42c

    drm/i915: Don't return busy for buffers left on the flushing list.
    These buffers don't have active rendering still occurring to them, they just
    need either a flush to be emitted or a retire_requests to occur so that we
    notice they're done.  Return unbusy so that one of the two occurs.  The two
    expected consumers of this interface (OpenGL and libdrm_intel BO cache) both
    want this behavior.

Fix has been pushed at linus.
Comment 4 Ben Gamari 2008-12-19 13:46:11 UTC
Yeah, things seem to be much more stable now. Now the only real stability issue I'm seeing is the random GPU hangs.
