Here's a test kernel based on "4.2.0-36.42~14.04.1" including the

kernel panic (General protection fault) on module hpsa
Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
Status in linux source package in Wily:
it has been brought to my attention the following:
Kernel version: 4.2.0-30-generic #36~14.04.1-Ubuntu
When running an sosreport on HP DL380 gen8 machines running this
kernel (Ubuntu 14.04.4 using linux-generic-lts-wily), which includes
hpsa 3.4.10-0, hspa causes a kernel panic when sosreport is scanning
block devices. These are machines with an onboard p420i and
daughtercard p420 RAID controller, with each drive in a single raid0
configuration. (unideal, but the machines do not boot when the card is
in HBA mode).
This panic does not happen on kernel 3.13 with hpsa 3.4.1-0 when using
The funny thing is kernel 4.2 / 3.4.10-0 still is a more stable
solution - I have yet to see a prior issue in which the p420 would
lock up on this version. One issue wit h this is HP 99% of the time
will require an sosreport when we raise any hardware issues. I can no
longer produce that on kernel 4.2 machines because they kernel panic.
I can reproduce this consistently with several other machines in our
environment. - please let me know if you would like more info.
