I have since upgraded the kernel to kernel-2.6.8-1.521 and I still
the notice up on the console.
Badness in interruptible_sleep_on_timeout at kernel/sched.c:2545
Any more ideas anyone? Or can people point me to a place to look for
information? Do I need to get in contact with the kernel developers at all?
You should do a simple "add information" to the existing
bug that you are running a new kernel (what ever it is) and still
see the problem.
Also be clear if this causes you a problem or if you are only
seeing the console message.
My guess is that a driver or other module is behaving badly once
and a failsafe timeout is putting things right. Since failsafe
code should never run that might be the 'Badness' that the message
is reporting. You can look at kernel source to verify my speculation.
Perhaps this is happening when kudzu and friends are inspecting hardware
to see if something has changed. Is kudzu running? Check by:
$ chkconfig --list | grep kud
kudzu 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
Does the error go away if you
$ chkconfig kudzu off
Does it return if you
$ chkconfig kudzu on
i.e. try and isolate the bootstrap and boot step where this happens.
You can also offer to add specific information as requested to the
bug. Stuff like hardware inventory, kernel modules inventory.
