Gentoo guest with 3.10.X kernels does not boot

Reported by: Panos Kavalagios Owned by:
Component: VMM/RAW Version: VirtualBox 4.2.20
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: Linux Host type: Linux

Description

The latest working kernel version is 3.8. The 3.10 kernels (latest 3.10.17) hangs the VM with 100% CPU utilisation and the following warning:

INFO: rcu_sched detected stalls on CPUs/tasks

as you can see in the screenshot. The same config on 3.8 boots OK.

  • priority changed from critical to major
  • Component changed from other to VMM/RAW

This looks like a bug in VirtualBox but fixing bugs for hosts which don't support VT-x/AMD-V have lower priority, sorry.

It's OK Frank. We are very pleased that you still supporting all of us stuck with old PC.

If there is any other workaround in the mean time, please let us know. Currently, using the 3.8 kernel can be used as a workaround.

The issue exists in 4.3.6 too.

Still an issue in 4.3.10 as well.

Is there anything which users can do to help resolve this? I'm happy to test any patches.

The issue is also reproduced with 5.0.2.

However, I have tested latest Gentoo kernel 4.0.5 with the well working 3.8.13 .config. After a "make olddefconfig", compilation and installation the kernel was booted successfully in the 5.0.2 VirtualBox version.
