Hi,

While changing the cpufreq governor with the following script for about
30 minutes, the kernel hits a BUG in workqueue.c. Detailed trace attached.

Script:
#!/bin/bash

while [ 1 ]
do
for govnrs in ondemand conservative
do
for cpu in 0 1 2 3
do
echo $govnrs > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu${cpu}/cpufreq/scaling_governor
if ! [ -d /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu${cpu}/cpufreq/${govnrs} ] ; then
echo "Error: Enable to create dir $govnrs"
fi
done
done
done
