SIGBUS error in the kernel's function; pa_quantum_to_paddr

Postby Pusik Park » Tue Feb 19, 2008 7:59 am

Dear Everyone.

I'm trying to port QNX into my own SoC platform.

My own SoC platform is based ARM926EJ-S 32-bit RISC Core which operates
141MHz and has 32MB SDRAM(base: 0x10000000) and 1MB NOR Flash.

The tool is QNX Momentics 6.3.2 non-commercial version.

I was modifying IPL, startup, and serial device driver of the legacy Samsung
S3C2410 BSP which had developed by RT Solution ago.

I met the shutdown message with SIGBUS.


Shutdown[0,0] S/C/F=10/1/5 C/D=fe006950/% state(c0)= now lock

C/D => Location of the kernel's code and data

state => The state of the kernel

now -- in the kernel

lock -- nonpreemptible

exit -- leaving kernel

specret -- special return processing

any number -- the interrupt nesting level


On CPU x(think SMP), process y was running thread z when the
crash occurred

P/T:00019001 => 00010000 + => _NTO_PF_NOCLDSTOP

00000001 + => _NTO_PF_SLEADER

00008000 + => _NTO_PF_RING0

00001000 => _NTO_PF_CHECK_INTR

FL:09000000=> 08000000 + => _NTO_TF_NOMULTISIG

01000000 => _NTO_TF_ALIGN_FAULT

PF => The process flags for the ASPACE PID

context => The register set

instruction => fc404624 The instruction on which the error

stack The contents of the stack


Thus, I debugged my BSP by TRACE32 ARM In-Circuit Debugger.

Attached 2-1.PNG image file is my debugging information.

In pa_quantum_to_paddr, during "ldr r3,[r3,+r1, lsl #0x2]" execution at the
address 0xFE01CB08,

when r1 was 0x2, operation was good but when r1 was 0xFFDF, exception

Because r3 had abnormal address at that time, memory access violation

Pa_quantum_to_paddr is the function of the kernel and thus I have problems
to debug it.

What source code out of the startup source code or serial device driver
source code causes this problem ?

After meeting shutdown message, I saw where PC is located.

You can look at this at the attached file "trace32.0219.PNG".

In addition, You can see QNX's procnto is loaded and running.

Best regards.
