ltp failures on autobuilder
Noting down what we know about the ltp issue:
We've seen intermittent issues on the autobuilder where some ltp tests fail or
hang. I've been trying to figure out how to reproduce the issue and narrow down
I was able to isolate a patch which reproduces the issue for me:
with master-next, setting:
IMAGE_INSTALL_append = ' ltp'
TEST_SUITES = 'ping ssh ltp'
bitbake core-image-sato; bitbake core-image-sato -c testimage
where the issue shows up as a kernel "BUG:" in the logs in WORKDIR/testimage/qemu_*
The above patch runs the minimum of ltp tests I could find which replicate the issue.
I've reproduced this on 5.10.1 -> 5.10.42, 5.4.123 and 5.13-rc5.
(and we've ruled out linux-yocto with plain kernels)
Also reproduced on both qemu 6.0.0 and 5.2.0.
