[Bug 1742502] [NEW] 108 and 109 kernel hangs

Public bug reported:

Overnight I had 2 of 12 16.04 servers brick with the 108 kernel. They
also do not work with 109. They work fine with 104. The other 10 worked
fine on both 108 and 109.

All are hosted on VMWARE. The two broken ones stop at the same place. I
was able to go back to the 104 kernel to get them working and pin the
kernel version.

Just for fun, I set zswap.enabled=0 and they both crashed with kthread
starved for jiffies. They are both multi-processor with lots of ram and
disk.

I have a task from the Ubuntu Kernel team to try this with 'nopti'. I'll
report back.

Additional info in hopes it proves useful.

On the hung boots, there is no recorded output to disk unfortunately.

This is what's installed on the machine running 108 nopti:

112 kernel has the same issue. Adding nopti allows it to boot.
What's different: It stops after zswap loading.

Can you see if this bug still occurs with the 116 kernel in -proposed?

Joe,

116 puts VMWARE into a loop. It forces a hard reboot somewhere during
the init process (scrolls by too fast). If I had NOPTI it boots
normally. So I would say, no, 116 does not fix this.
