Martin Michlmayr offered a build of 2.6.29-rc5 for test to
debian-mips, and that kernel is showing console-related issues on my
I'm not sure what's going, so here are my observations:
- the Newport console is not detected anymore
- getty process stuck
root 1226 98.7 0.0 0 0 tty1 Rs+ 19:48 9:22 [getty]
gettys on tty[2-6] might also be stuck somewhere. Can't strace the
getty on tty1 (operation not permitted) and strace on tty[2-6]
attaches to the process but doesn't print anything and is stuck from
here on. Cannot detach or anything. Processes are of course
- dmesg fills up with
tty_release_dev: tty1: read/write wait queue active!
No keyboard/screen attached, serial console only.
Does that ring any bell wrt recent tty changes? Any idea?
