Usually it will print the warn after a few seconds.
I haven't digged through all the ring buffer code yet, so i thought i might ask
whether you have an idea what's going on.
Can you send me the config for where you can reproduce it on x86?
The iterator now doesn't stop the ring buffer when it iterates, and is
doing so over a live buffer (but should be able to handle it). It's
triggering something I thought wasn't suppose to happen (which must be
Perhaps with your config I'd be able to reproduce it.
