It looks like memory layout changes in the f-segment is tickling the underlying bug. I don't think SMBIOS, the above commit, or the other commit identified earlier are the root cause of the problem. Instead, I'd guess these commits just change the memory layout enough to avoid the root cause.
Sounds like a reasonable explanation. Is there anything I can do to try to pin down the problem?
This looks like it is going to require some careful study with a debugger and some execution traces. Unfortunately, since this image isn't available for download it makes it difficult to track down.
I understand that. But I'm afraid I can't provide any such image.
I don't think Juniper has done anything extra-ordinary at this point however, so I'll try to see if I can create a freely distributable image triggering the bug using the same tools as them. Will let you know if I succeed.
