All terminals including TTYs stop working with kernel 6.8.2-arch2-1

I started to notice frequent hangs when running the unt tests of Neovim. The tests just stop progressing, it might take a couple of complete runs, but it happens frequently. At the same time all terminals, both old and new stops working, while the rest of the system appears to be fine. Even switching to another TTY, for example "ctrl-alt-F3" only shows a blank screen.

And this is shown in the journal log after the reboot when I'm able to check it.

And the version of Neovim I was testing was the latest b25753381c6049132c5c8d02eb62df99f8a958fd

Sorry for the vague information. Since no terminal is working, I don't know how to debug it at this point anymore. I have also not had time to test different kernel versions if it occurs with them as well. And unfortunately, I will have to leave from here and won't have access to this computer for a few weeks, so if it's something hardware specific it might be hard to track down.

I also don't remember which version of the kernel I used when the last time it was working on this machine, and not the version of Neovim either.

Re: All terminals including TTYs stop working with kernel 6.8.2-arch2-1

It seems like just suspending Neovim 0.9.5 with a file open, using "<C-z>" is enough to trigger this:

Re: All terminals including TTYs stop working with kernel 6.8.2-arch2-1

Have you  confirmed the ctrl+z situation?
It typically stops and backgrounds a process, no idea how it might manage to stop ALL ttys (and pts?), though.
I guess it manages to stop all processes down to PID1 (systemd/init) what should™ require UID0 privileges (are you doing this as root? Otherwise some suid process might be involved)

Re: All terminals including TTYs stop working with kernel 6.8.2-arch2-1

Yes, I was able to repeat the "ctrl-z" issue as well, but I rebooted a bit too fast, so I did not get a journal log entry. But the symptoms were exactly the same.

And no, there's no root account involved. Based on the callstacks it looks like it could be a deadlock in the kernel(ldsem_down_write), but that might be a wrong lead, I know nothing about the kernel code.

I will check if I can repeat it here on my other system as well. If I can, I will probably setup a virtual machine, and see if I can narrow it down further.

Re: All terminals including TTYs stop working with kernel 6.8.2-arch2-1

This has been a problem in the past (CVE-2015-4170) - to see whether this is a kernel or userspace bug you could test the behavior on the LTS kernel.

Re: All terminals including TTYs stop working with kernel 6.8.2-arch2-1

I ran with older (lts -- 6.6.23-1-lts) kernel, and I can report that nvim on TTY doesn't cause the issue, but nvim inside river (wlroots WM) does cause the same issue.

As reported in the nvim issue, not only are all terminals (and TTYs) unusable, but new ones as well, and also logind (or whatever the thing that starts up new TTYs at Ctrl+Alt+FN), doesn't even bother to show the login dialog (but if focused beforehand the login dialog will stay there but be unusable).

EDIT: dmesg --follow doesn't show anything. Any suggestions on logs to tail?

Are running PTS (aka "ssh") affected?

Yes. So I logged in before triggering - works, after triggering -- stuck. Also I can't ssh again (no response from ssh, with ssh -v the last line is `debug1: pledge: fork`)

Re: All terminals including TTYs stop working with kernel 6.8.2-arch2-1

I was experiencing the same behavior until recently. After pressing Ctrl-Z within neovim, all terminals stopped working. I figured out that if I manually send a signal (SIGCONT or SIGKILL) to the neovim process using kde's System Monitor app, everything gets back to normal again.

P.S. After system update I can't reproduce the issue any more. It doesn't mean that the issue is gone, it could be just a race condition that is not being triggered every time.

Re: All terminals including TTYs stop working with kernel 6.8.2-arch2-1

What packages got updated?
Pretty much the only way this makes sense is if the stopped nvim process is holding a global IO lock in the kernel (so basically the CVE returned, probably not exactly the same way)

Re: All terminals including TTYs stop working with kernel 6.8.2-arch2-1

Sorry, I did not get around to do more testing yet.

But in my case, when I initially encountered it through the unit tests, the nvim process could not even be killed with SIGKILL, it was totally stuck. Trying to reboot the system also got stuck, I had to do a hardware reset.

This seems to be an issue with io_uring which is being patched - see more information here https://github.com/axboe/liburing/issues/1113

Re: All terminals including TTYs stop working with kernel 6.8.2-arch2-1

Is this resolved by the work queue reverts that caused 6.8.4?
