Intro to Kernel Debugging: Just make the crashing stop


Nodes die, and the machines get re-kicked; but sometimes the toil becomes too much. We’ll take you on the journey of one such issue in the xfs filesystem. We'll cover things like post-mortem data gathering, finding and building the sources, kernel code layout, kernel oops analysis, using git to identify fixes, community processes, advanced debugging options, and more.  By the end, you'll have the tools necessary to reject the toil and start solving.
