- xorg-server 1.17.2
- Linux 4.1.6
X is unable to start from what appears to be a block by nouveau. Blacklisting nouveau in /etc/modprobe.d/nouveau.conf like so:
results in a kernel panic. See attached dmesg and Xorg.0.log. Forgive me if I am reporting this bug in the wrong place.

What is this -- xcmddc ? I suspect it's not helping.
But actually your problem is due to xf86-video-intel built against a recent libdrm version. You either need a patch, or to downgrade libdrm below 2.4.60. The intel ddx patch is available at http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/driver/xf86-video-intel/commit/?id=7fe2b2948652443ff43d907855bd7a051d54d309
By the way, for the xcmddc issue, it may be helpful if you could provide your vbios (available at /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/vbios.rom).
But Xorg is crashing most likely because of intel, which you need to rebuild against an older libdrm (or rebuild with the patch I linked to).
Thank you Ilia! I will try that patch.
Upgrading xf86-video-intel did the trick! Thank you Ilia. Although on my first reboot X would not start. It was a hard lockup (I was unable to get to another tty).
After forcing a reboot with the power button, I was able to start X on the next boot. I don't know if there is a relevant bug somewhere, but I will provide the necessary logs in case someone can make sense of them.
Looks like you still have the same failure from xcmddc. IMO it's worth investigating/fixing. Will need your vbios though, as I mentioned before.

Hi Ilia, I appreciate your help. This directory is empty: /sys/kernel/debug/
Is there anywhere else I can look?
Make sure that debugfs is mounted. e.g.
mount -t debugfs debugfs /sys/kernel/debug
Ah, I did not know that! Learning is fun. :-)
As requested, vbios.rom:
Also the system is still experiencing a hard lock up after a few minutes, so this is definitely worth investigating.
Please attach files here.
Sorry, trying to do this from my phone, since the computer will not stay on for more than a few minutes.
Add nouveau.modeset=0 to your kernel cmdline, that should prevent nouveau from loading. I believe that xcmddc is killing of CPU's one-by-one as nouveau is mishandling something it's asking for.

Thank you, I was able to get it attached.
Ilia, should I change the status of this bug?

dmesg on linux 4.1.8
Just so you know, I am still getting a hard system freeze on Linux 4.1.8.

Are you able to try with a 4.3-rc kernel? This code got reworked to be more sane and hopefully fixes this issue as a side-effect.

Thanks for the reply Ben. X does not work for me on Linux 4.2.1 (it will not start). I just tried compiling Linux 4.3-rc2, but it will not compile, I will try again when rc3 comes out, hopefully that will fix it.
Linux 4.3-rc3 will not compile either, here is the error:
arch/x86/built-in.o: In function `hv_machine_crash_shutdown':
mshyperv.c:(.text+0x31dcf): undefined reference to `native_machine_crash_shutdown'
make: *** [vmlinux] Error 1
Is there a patch I can try against nouveau?

dmesg for linux 4.3-rc7
I haven't had a freeze yet on Linux 4.3-rc7.
Do you notice anything wonky in dmesg?
This appears to be fixed in the Nov 19 version of nouveau (git commit 6e6d8ac).
I spoke too soon, the issue seems absent with the latest nouveau driver on Linux 4.2.x+, but still exists on 4.1.x. I now have Xorg 1.18.0 if that makes any difference.
