[OpenAFS] 1.4.0 on Solaris 10 x86/amd64
Mon, 7 Nov 2005 10:23:55 -0800 (PST)
I'm not sure if I'm missing something, but all I can find from the link you
provided is the initial bug report..
The patch you're referring to is in 1.4.0, and it deals with user level
commands "svcs -p" and "ctrun -v" causing a system panic because of an orphaned
kernel thread.. The patch causes the kernel thread to be associated with
"sched" instead of orphaned.. which causes some weirdness in svcs -p (sched
shows up looking like it "belongs" to afs), but it doesn't crash!
That happens on 32bit, 64bit, amd64, SPARC, etc.. It's a function of how Solaris
10 kernel deals with tracking processes and threads associated with the
That patch does Not resolve the "No such device" on any afs volume in Solaris
10 x86/64 booted in 64bit mode, which is the bug this email was about, and the
bug you posted was about..
I hope that helps clarify things.. If I'm missing where the resolution is shown
on the URL you sent, please let me know.. I'd love to try it out if there is a
different patch to address this.
