I can confirm this too. After my last go-around with this box I was able
to get it running by removing uhci:
[root at thoth /usr/src/sys/i386/conf]# uname -a
FreeBSD thoth.seekingfire.com 7.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT #0: Thu
Dec 29 22:27:03 CST 2005
toor at thoth.seekingfire.com:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/THOTH i386
[root at thoth /usr/src/sys/i386/conf]# grep '###' THOTH
###device uhci # UHCI PCI->USB interface
(### is the symbol I use for something that's been commented out for
important reasons, so I don't later on mess with it)
However, I'm occassionally seeing the box spontanouesly reboot:
[root at thoth /usr/src/sys/i386/conf]# uptime
8:43AM up 17:42, 2 users, load averages: 0.01, 0.01, 0.06
It's not all that often, though I can occassionally trigger it with a
buildworld/buildkernel (which is what killed it yesterday).
[root at thoth /var/crash]# ls -l | grep Jan
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 2 Jan 9 15:01 bounds
-rw------- 1 root wheel 451 Jan 9 15:01 info.6
-rw------- 1 root wheel 268042240 Jan 9 15:02 vmcore.6
Debugging and invariants are turned off in the kernel, and I currently
lack the knowledge to do much with the vmcore in any case :-)
The crashes are very likely unrelated to the usb problem (this box also
runs pf and ipsec, either of which could be unhappy). I'm interested in
hearing about stability of other 1600Rs under load.
