I found an exchange concerning a difficult to debug problem that may be
affecting FreeBSD. I wasn't sure whether to post here or just file a bug, but
under the circumstances I opted for the former. Apologies if it is considered
I was reading the exchange here:
Referencing the following patch to Linux;
The exchange in the Debian bug tracker indicates kfreebsd 6/7 has the same
problem as Linux. Being a kernel issue, that indicates vanilla FreeBSD may
likely be affected.
I neither have the setup nor the knowledge to effectively evaluate this
myself, but felt that it was obscure/diagnostically difficult enough that i
wanted to bring it to somebody's attention.
