some output/debug files.
My Mageia v6 x86-64 system's keyboard and screen are freezing after I play
this file in VLC player (including on startx using JWM in a new user):
Here are its specs:
An Intel Core i3 CPU (x86-64).
8 GB of RAM.
Intel Corporation Sandy Bridge Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
A 2 TB hard-disk.
A 21″ Wide LCD Screen by LG.
Intel Corporation Cougar Point High Definition Audio Controller.
Intel Corporation 82579V Gigabit Network Connection.
ssh to it still works. chvt doesn't work.
"systemctl start lightdm.service" as root doesn't reset the screen.
htop shows that 4GB out of 7.71G are occupied but there are no large MEM%
The attached .zip contains the output of some commands as requested on #intel-gfx on freenode. Note that «cat /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/i915_gem_objects» just hangs. Playing the file with mpv works fine.

*** Bug 98760 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Revamped the ppgtt alloc in drm-tip, including some fault testing. Please test.
I tested this bug again today and what happens is that VLC fails to play the video properly as there are green screens and garbage on the screen and sometimes segfaults, but the containing environment remains stable and functional. I have upgraded many components / packages of my Mageia v6 system so maybe one of them broke the default VLC.
But does it still work on an old kernel? If so, a single component to bisect - even if it tells us what introduced the NULL pointer deref - would be helpful.
Nothing in dmesg or other system log files? Not even a GPU hang? :|

I can try testing it on an old kernel, but it'll take some time to build it.

I don't see anything in dmesg after using vlc to play that file.

Turned out I had a 4.8.15 kernel already built and installed on my computer. While running it, the original bug can still be reproduced - the screen and keyboard freeze.
We need to go older then. Before it died, did it show the same corruption?

not sure I understand you, but I'll try. VLC didn't get to showing the green background / etc. - it freezed the computer immediately.

I'd be happy to test on my Haswell-based machine, but I can't seem to find the right source repository to build from. Could you give me some hints about *what* I need to build and *where* to get it from? I'm currently running Fedora 25 on my machine.

Kernel built from drm-tip branch of https://cgit.freedesktop.org/drm-tip
An update - I can reproduce a similar freeze again on the same Core i3 machine with the drm-tip kernel. Note that I'll have some problems sshing into it after the issue occurs until my laptop returns. The problematic commit is:

In case it wasn't clear - I am asking for help in getting the post-mortem information about that freeze. Can anyone provide me with a script for that?

I know where the memory starvation is coming from in v4.9+ -- it creates huge objects and pwrites into just a page, and then never uses the object. We are pinning the whole object, and since it is not used by the gpu, it is not currently being accounted for -- a side-effect of the obj->mm.lock work. Even with that fixed, this is going to be badly behaving.
Ah, not just a page:

drm/i915: Use pagecache write to prepopulate shmemfs from pwrite-ioctl
The earlier BUG should have been resolved, and this commit should prevent vlc triggering the regression in v4.10
Confirmed, no longer seeing this on my Haswell machine with Fedora kernel-4.11.2-200.fc25.x86_64 .
