bhyve Bhyve: Linux kernel 4.19 doesn't boot, but 4.14 does

Hello,

I am trying to run Debian Linux under bhyve. Results:

1) Debian 9 with kernel 4.9 boots
2) self-compiled vanilla 4.14 from kernel.org boots
3) Debian 10 with kernel 4.19 does not boot
4) self compiled vanilla 4.19 from kernel.org does not boot
5) another Debian kernel v. 5.6 does not boot

It's really starting to look like sometime between 4.14 and 4.19 they added something which breaks booting under bhyve, or at least my installation of bhyve.

When it 'does not boot' it always stops at precisely the same place. Log below:

4.14 was the version which introduced Spectre/Meltdown mitigations.
The mitigations were introduced step-by-step in the sub versions 4.14.xx, 4.15 and onward that followed.

Some 4.14 versions had very serious issues that broke things, as the introduction of spectre/meltdown mitigations was done in an extreme hurry, sometimes versions following each other in a few hours.

No idea whether bhyve can deal with things like microcode updating and all that stuff that was introduced or made activated by default in Linux these days.

Are you saying that running a Linux kernel > 4.14 is impossible under bhyve?

Here's someone who has managed to installed Debian 10 (which uses kernel 4.19 by default):

No, I just said what came into my mind, as there recently another guy had problems getting bhyve run post-Spectre/Meltdown Windows 10, which were solved by some command line options.

I think there might be some bhyve options that need to be set correctly so that these late OSes, which might fiddle with the CPU microcode and other things not seen before Spectre/Meltdown, can be run.

I'm running several Debian VMs with bhyve; None kernel update so far made a problem, any worked. The actual 4.19 from Stable works - but there's no Debian around anymore with a 5.6 kernel; But as Testing now uses 5.10 I can say: If there was a 5.6 in Testing, it worked.

So there isn't a general problem; It must be related to your hardware and/or installation.

Thanks Snurg & jmos.

So it's looking like this is some misconfiguration with my bhyve.
I've tried binary search; so far I've established that kernel 4.14.219 (the latest of the 4.14 line) boots with no problems, whereas 4.16.9 stops booting at exactly the same place already given in the log in the first post. Now I am trying 4.15.13.

I've tried passing special parameters to kernel 4.16.9 to switch off Spectre & Meltdown mitigations as described in


( nospectre_v1 nospectre_v2 spectre_v2_user=off spec_store_bypass_disable=off l1tf=off mds=off tsx_async_abort=off nx_huge_pages=off nopti )

unfortunately that doesn't seem to make any difference - 4.16.9 with those mitigations switched off still stops booting at exactly the same point.
