Hi all,

I experienced the following bug whilst using a Xen VM. What happened was
that this morning a single Xen VM suddenly terminated without cause with the
following being logged in dmesg. 

Only 1 VM experienced an issue (out of 2 which were running), the other
remained up and fully functional until I attempted to restart the crashed VM
which triggered the kernel bug.

Kernel: 4.14.6
Xen:            4.8.2

The section of relevant kernel code is:


static inline void xenvif_grant_handle_reset(struct xenvif_queue *queue,
                                             u16 pending_idx)
        if (unlikely(queue->grant_tx_handle[pending_idx] ==
                     NETBACK_INVALID_HANDLE)) {
                           "Trying to unmap invalid handle! pending_idx:
        queue->grant_tx_handle[pending_idx] = NETBACK_INVALID_HANDLE;


In an attempt to recover from this situation I restarted / destroyed (xl
restart <vmname> / xl destroy <vmname>) the VM to recover it's state and the
following error messages were logged at the console:


libxl: error: libxl_exec.c:129:libxl_report_child_exitstatus:
/etc/xen/scripts/block remove [25271] died due to fatal signal Segmentation
libxl: error: libxl_device.c:1080:device_backend_callback: unable to remove
device with path /local/domain/0/backend/vif/2/0
libxl: error: libxl.c:1647:devices_destroy_cb: libxl__devices_destroy failed
for 2


After which the physical system hung, then the physical system restarted
with nothing else logged and everything came back OK & operational including
the VM that crashed.

Further details (xl dmesg, xl info) attached.

Best regards,

Alex Braunegg
