I just experienced the funny slow down until kernel death experience again
that I reported many months ago on my dual 1gig G4 machine (smp with 768
meg of memory)
The dmesg log is full of a long stream of the following
wait_on_irq, CPU 0:
irq: -1 [0 0]
bh: 0 [0 0]
Everything got slower and slower (I could actually watch the sequence of
events that happen when an icon is clicked!)
And processing would only continue if I hit <enter> for some reason.
I was able to restart the machine after syncing the drive but my restart
ended up with lost interrupt messages and literally hung on the hde
I literally had to unplug the machine for awhile and then restart it to
Once rebooted everything is lightning fast again.
Can anyone tell me what this warning/error message really means and how I
might go about tracking this down myself.
