Re: [Xen-users] Hypervisor trap when dumping register


Again, please configure your e-mail client to quote properly. I.e using '>' rather than tabulations.

    EC=0x25 (see D7.2.27 in ARM DDI 0487A.i) is a data abort from the
    hypervisor. Can you please paste all the logs, give the rc you are

Hi, Julien

This is all the logs and the system get halt on the last line. I am
using 4.7.0-rc which is checked out from git repository master branch.

So you are saying there is no log before hand too?

I found it is caused by a printk in xen/arch/arm/trap.c where is trying
to print out symblo for PC with %pS in show_registers_64(). It will
finally call a vsnprintf to format the string.

When I comment out all the lines that has printk with %pS or changed the
%pS to %p, every thing works fine. So I guess this is maybe a bug on
arm64 with libc?

Xen does not use the libc.

I have tried several versions of linaro's latest gcc and still got no luck.

Any advise?

Let first figure out why you do not get any log but the line you paste. You can try to pass "sync_console" on the Xen commandline.
