I used SysRq+J (thaw), now I am being flooded with printk messages: emergency thaw on sr0. It will never stop.

I do not wish to wait, until a SysRq command ends while blocking the terminal all the time. Switching tty's does not help.

How can I abort a SysRq command?

The solution must only exclude one thing: rebooting.

    SysRq+T dumps a list of tasks and then stops. It doesn't have anything to do with sr0. I don't think any of the SysRq commands causes kernel messages to be printed forever. What makes you think that those messages are caused by a SysRq request? – Gilles Apr 21 '18 at 20:37
  • Sorry, @Gilles, I meant SysRq+J (Thaw). It prints "Emergency Thaw on sr0". – neverMind9 Apr 21 '18 at 20:57

    It's a kernel bug, so you'll have to reboot. Sorry: superuser.com/q/360360/873319 – dsstorefile1 Apr 21 '18 at 21:13
  • @DsStoreFile 2011, still unfixed? – neverMind9 Apr 21 '18 at 23:14
