Forkbomb fails on Spinlock_acquire

(Achuth Narayan Rajagopal) #1

We run into the issue 5 seconds into the execution of forkbomb. We are releasing the spinlock before returning in everycase. The value of the splk_lock is 1.

I don’t know what could be causing this.

We finally figured it out. We missed an edge case when were allocation pages in the coremap so the spinlock was not released properly when the coremap was full.
