I'm having a Solaris 11.3 i86pc where I have observed kernel panic after OS reboot. Below are the stack traces obtained in core dump file after the kernel panic:

> ::stack
lm_latch_attn_everest_processing+0x45b(ffffa1c09e200000, 80014000)
BnxeServiceDefSbIntr+0x195(ffffa1c09e200000, fffffffc82166a68, fffffffc82166a6c)
apix_dispatch_lowlevel+0x32(20, 0)
apix_do_interrupt+0x353(fffffffc82004960, 0)

and the message buffer having related information:

<1> lm_hw_attn.c( 663): Condition Failed! - if (1)

fffffffc82004af0 unix:disp_getwork+170 ()
fffffffc82004b20 unix:idle+9c ()
fffffffc82004b30 unix:thread_start+8 ()

I got lm_hw_attn.c file where all the related functions are written.

I want to know the reason for the kernel panic and by which system call it has happened.

  • which system call it has happened Why do you think a system call initiated the panic? And how up-to-date is your bnxe driver? Apr 17, 2018 at 9:43
  • I'm not sure about the system call, I just doubted if that could be the reason. I saw this kernel panic after rebooting my system.

  • The bnxe driver is very old but I believe it is stable enough. I've been using the same driver since last two years. Moreover, this is the latest driver available in the latest SRU. I would be glad if I get the updated driver from some other source.

  • "Stable enough"? It's involved in a kernel panic. That's not very stable. But if you've been using it for two years and it only started causing panics recently, what changed? Apr 18, 2018 at 9:59
  • Are you doubting the driver to be the main reason for kernel panic? I'm using bnxe 7.10.7 in my system where I haven't changed anything except that I rebooted this system after a year.
