Hi Christian,

In v5.3, running dEQP triggers the following kernel crash :

[   20.224982] Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 0000000000000038

[   20.432690] ---[ end trace bd02f890139096a7 ]---

Which never happens, at all, on v5.2.

I did a (very) long (7 days, ~100runs) bisect run using our LAVA lab (thanks tomeu !), but
bisecting was not easy since the bad commit landed on drm-misc-next after v5.1-rc6, and
then v5.2-rc1 was backmerged into drm-misc-next at:
[1] 374ed5429346 Merge drm/drm-next into drm-misc-next

Thus bisecting between [1] ang v5.2-rc1 leads to commit based on v5.2-rc1... where panfrost was
not enabled in the Khadas VIM2 DT.

Anyway, I managed to identify 3 possibly breaking commits :
[2] 290764af7e36 drm/sched: Keep s_fence->parent pointer
[3] 5918045c4ed4 drm/scheduler: rework job destruction
[4] a5343b8a2ca5 drm/scheduler: Add flag to hint the release of guilty job.

But [1] and [2] doesn't crash the same way :
[   16.257912] Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 0000000000000060

and [3] fails like on v5.3 (in drm_sched_increase_karma):

When I revert [3] on [1], i get the same crash as [2], meaning
the commit [3] masks the failure [2] introduced.

Do you know how to solve this ?

Thanks,
Neil
