I was running a Hurd system with an up-to-date GNU Mach kernel in QEMU and
was issueing a ``settrans -ca /tmp/f ./ext2fs-pre_ogi.static /dev/fd0'' when
I was presented with a system crash and the kernel debugger displaying a
``Kernel page fault at address 0x1d''. Analyzing the eip showed that it
happened in `setup_rw_floppy', `linux/dev/drivers/block/floppy.c:1447'.
`ext2fs-pre_ogi.static' is -- as the name suggests -- a statically compiled
pre-Ogi-patched `ext2fs' (that allows block sizes different from 4k), has
worked before just fine and can be gotten from
`/dev/fd0' is a QEMU-emulated floppy disk device, operating on a GRUB disk
image. When I earlier used `dd' to copy the whole device's content into a
file, that worked just fine.
(gdb) x/3i 0x16a6b5
0x16a6b5 <setup_rw_floppy+437>: movzbl 0x1d(%edx),%eax
0x16a6b9 <setup_rw_floppy+441>: cmp %ebx,%eax
0x16a6bb <setup_rw_floppy+443>: jg 0x16a6a0 <setup_rw_floppy+416>
That's also what the kernel debugger showed me.
Examining the registers I see that %edx in fact is zero.
