Xorg hardlock; latest libdrm, mesa, xf86-video-ati, xorg-server 1.10.2
since several days I'm easily getting hardlocks when having
compiz-fusion (0.8.4/0.8.6) enabled with emerald and by simply browsing through the web
e.g. just now I got a hardlock with browsing through kernel source directories on github
last time it was during app-switching (alt + tab)
magic sysrq key doesn't work anymore the box seems to be completely dead

live builds of:
xorg-server 1.10.2 and 184.108.40.2062 (also happened with that)
afaik this started when I had watched a video with flash in fullscreen a few days ago (I wanted to see if things had improved) and everything seemed to be dead by the sound of the video kept on playing (no loop !)
- usb keyboard + mouse affected
- screen output affected (monitor -> black/blank)
any help would be highly welcome since I need this box working with composite asap
Many thanks in advance !
ok seems like it works again:
- compiled the kernel + added newer radeon-ucode (20110531)
- re-compiled all the mentioned packages
- freshly re-installed adobe-flash
and it didn't crash so far with fullscreen flash
also did some app-switching, etc.
oh CRAP !
it's happening again :\
several hours of stable usage and then suddenly it hardlocked again while surfing with chromium through github
something's definitely not cool
just had the following softreset if it's useful

the reset doesn't seem to work correctly
the fan of the PC is spinning faster and louder constantly after the reset
even though it's set to "low" profile the fan is spinning faster
so the "fix" so far for this little "issue" was to set it to "mid" and then back to "low"
echo mid > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/power_profile
echo low > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/power_profile

I reported something like that three months ago (it hasn't been fixed). Maybe it's the same issue:
For me, disabling page flipping prevents this from happening.
If it's pageflipping related, this patch should fix the issue:
I hoped it would, but unfortunately, it doesn't.

I disabled it and it's smooth sailing for several hours already
will try out your patch when I find some time
Segfault and lock-ups
This might not be a similar issue, but I'm facing Segfaults using xorg-edgers repository on Xubuntu. This always occurs when the game Extreme Tux Racer is run from the terminal. Has been happening ever since I started using the repo (1 week back) so I can't tell when exactly this started happening in relation to git. I reverted back to stock Xubuntu drm, mesa, radeon driver, xorg and it does not occur, hence I believe this might be a regression.
I also get hard lockups frequently, regardless if flash videos are being watched or games are being run. Only solution is to hard reset.
Tried to look for logs on the Segfault, but couldn't find anything in Xorg.log, dmesg, kern.log or syslog.
I would like to help out identify the bugs but don't have any experience in bug reporting. If instructions can be provided, I am more than willing to help report bugs.
Processor: Pentium 4
Graphics card: Radeon Xpress 200 - RC410 (assigned 256Mb ram in BIOS)
Kernel: 3.0.0-999-generic #201106091205 SMP i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
xorg.conf settings (tried all variations but didn't help):
Option "EnablePageFlip" "True"
Option "ColorTiling" "True"
Option "SwapbuffersWait" "False"
Xorg Edgers packages:
ok, seems like a good point to test out that patch

I re-compiled my whole system and the X-server and the video driver
but it kept on coming after several days, hours or even minutes - completely random
there was sort of a commonality: it very often happened when running chromium and browsing through github
so I disabled the gles (opengl ES) switch for mesa
and recompiled everything
so far it's still running for several hours
will see if it was that which caused the hardlocks & keep you updated
if not I'll recompile the kernel with your patch
