dmesg-output after 25 minute hardware-accelerated html5 video crash, no
hardlock this time (Magic SYSRQ works), screen corruption (screen subdivided
horizontally into ~18 parts)

kernel running with drm-next-3.17-rebased-on-fixes applied on top of 3.16-rc6

drm/radeon: allow userptr write access under certain conditions

several hours of pushing and trying to get X/system lockup with firefox
(hardware acceleration enabled) and watching & opening up large jpg images -
showed that at least that issue was resolved (Bug #81612 )

Then now proceeded to re-test HTML5 video with hardware acceleration (hardware
acceleration disabled was seemingly stable so far)

the funny thing: each of the last 3 test attempts after pretty much exactly 25
minutes it tends to lock up X

reproducer: chromium 38.0.2107.3 (previous versions should also work), but this
one has more options disabled which should rule out other crash/instability

youtube.com ,
keywords: movie trailers 2014

watching random movie trailers with preferrably 1080p (some only available in

result: screen content locks up, mouse still movable for a short time & sound
continuing, the screen turning black - (box locking up/hardlock - this time
*not*) - this time: (in total 2) attempts to salvage via Magic SYSRQ + k

screen flickers, another Magic SYSRQ + k

screen turns on again, mentioned screen corruption (screen subdivided
horizontally into ~18 parts) with mostly white and green color in the shape of

took a photo, if needed

so we got a *clear* improvement: the box does *not* hardlock anymore, Magic
SYSRQ key works again and screen attempts to recover with Magic SYSRQ + k,

but it's not successful yet

hope the information of dmesg helps with further adding some ideas on how to
solve this

added the following patchset (patches 2-7) on top of that kernel
https://lkml.org/lkml/2014/8/3/120 ([PATCH 0/7] locking/rwsem: enable reader
opt-spinning & writer respin ), not sure if that might increase stability
