Description Mahmoud Al-Qudsi 2020-01-18 01:47:19 UTC

I have FreeBSD 12.1-RELEASE-p1 GENERIC (unmodified) amd64 running under ESXi 6.7, and have had no problems whatsoever for a number of years.

While using ctld to serve a zvol as an iscsi target, I ran into a kernel panic (which I'll try to reproduce), summarized below:

Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode
cpuid = 0; apic id = 00
fault virtual address   = 0x0

I recently upgraded the host machine and in the process switched from vmxnet3 virtualized network adapters to SR-IOV from the (same) Intel T520-CR. I had no problems in the past with an exclusively vmxnet3 configuration, but before I rush to blame it on if_ixv I must note that iSCSI is being served over the usual and boring vmxnet3 interface.

Can you try the latest stable/12?  vmx has received a number of fixes for regressions introduced in 12.1.
