[Bug 1509111] Re: Hard lockup but certain UI elements keeps changing


I've been running 4.3.0-rc6 for a week or so without any lockups so I'm
inclined to think this is a kernel issue (interaction?).

Since 4.3 just was released, I can take a look and see if that works as

  Hard lockup but certain UI elements keeps changing

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I recently upgraded to Wily and I discovered that my system hard
  freezes about 2-3 times a day. This is the usual: unresponsive
  keyboard (including magic sysrq), unresponsive USB, no response to
  pings over the network, music/audio loops, as well as no evidence of
  errors in syslog, kern.log, Xorg.log.

  However, there's one very unusual aspect of this lockup: I have an on
  screen clock to the second and when the lockup occurs, the clock keeps
  ticking by the second! This means that code must be executing
  somewhere... This happened all but one occurance of hard freeze, where
  the clock also froze. In fact, I was on Facebook at one point and saw
  that I was disconnected. The facebook UI then followed up with the
  animation of "Reconnecting... 10... 9... 8...".

  I feel like posting here is a very long shot, but maybe someone else
  has something similar.

  Next time this happens I'll try to hook this machine to ethernet to
  see if there's any response and try to ssh into it. I could also write
  a program that writes to syslog every 5 seconds and see if those get
  written when the machine is "locked up". Not sure what else I can do
  at this point. I can also memtest or play kernel roulette with
  mainline, but the machine was previously stable on utopic (with BIOS
  instead of UEFI boot, tho).
