It would be interesting to see where the int3 comes from. Too bad, lockdep doesn't provide the register dump. The stacktrace also doesn't go further than the int3(), I wonder if this int3 came from userspace? The ltrace readme says "software breakpoints, like gdb", so I guess this is the case. Yep, seems like it. This looks relevant: | commit fb1dac909d94ff807cd833d340c6827c3a957159 | Author: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> | Date: Wed Jan 16 09:51:59 2008 +0100 | | lockdep: more hardirq annotations for notify_die() I'm attaching a similarly-looking patch for this case (DO_VM86_ERROR), though I suspect it might be missing for the other cases (DO_ERROR/DO_ERROR_INFO) as well.
