(I don't think I have fully understood the problem yet, this bug is mainly to serve as a memo documenting what we have done so far and already know; Thanks for markj@'s hints in how to get useful debugging information)

Set up kernel crash dump for DRM

Set the following sysctl's:

As well as a dump device.


After setting this up, I was able to get a kernel crash dump, with the following backtrace:

And the assertion was triggered here:

2274	}


So basically, in r352110, vm_page_wire was modified to require a VM object, and the requirement is enforced as an assertion.

The Linux get_page() API basically do the same of wiring the page, but it's not yet clear to me whether we can always assert that the page is already mapped (in FreeBSD's terms).

A quick hack would be to replace the vm_page_wire(page) call in sys/compat/linuxkpi/common/include/linux/mm.h with an assertion that the
equivalent call of vm_page_wire_mapped(page) succeeded, and I am able to
get my laptop working again with CURRENT.

^Triage: Assign to reporter (committer) for coordination at least until a more appropriate assignee is determined.
Comment 2 Mark Johnston freebsd_committer 2019-09-15 19:57:26 UTC
We had discussed this over email and I claimed that the assertion in vm_page_wire() is too strong.  But, the problematic vm_page_wire() call is wrong too, so I submitted this instead: https://github.com/FreeBSDDesktop/kms-drm/pull/175
Comment 3 Xin LI freebsd_committer 2019-11-30 06:11:28 UTC
Fixed in upstream a while ago, so closing and thanks for fixing!
