Description paul 2008-12-22 01:20:51 UTC
Latest working kernel version:kernel 2.6.24

Earliest failing kernel version: kernel 2.6.27

Distribution: Mandriva
Hardware Environment: Atlon AMD 1800+,

Software Environment: KDE

Problem Description: As said in the summary, with kernel 2-6-27 and 2-6-28 (thos ones are availables in mandriva repositories), all my devices are not recognized by the kernel. So, I have no printers, no internet, no webcam.....
With kernel 2-6-24, everything is fine. The bug is not due to patched  mandriva kernel since I used a pure linux version kernel.

Steps to reproduce:Just boot the kernel

Comment 5 Roland Kletzing 2008-12-26 04:24:43 UTC
"all my devices" is a little bit unspecific.

it`s not up to the kernel alone to setup all modules for every attached hardware properly. 
 
please, also provide kernel configs (zcat /proc/config.gz) and normal lspci output here and expect some more questions to follow.

Comment 9 Roland Kletzing 2008-12-29 06:11:57 UTC
it seems, there`s no entry in /sys/bus/pci/devices (besides "." and "..")

do you have any pci entry in /sys/devices, e.g. /sys/devices/pci0000:00 ? 

does that directory contain pci device id`s ?

any pci memory regions shown in /proc/iomem ? (e.g. dc900000-dc9fffff : PCI Bus 0000:16 ...)

ah, here is some:

ACPI: PCI Interrupt Routing Table [\_SB_.PCI0._PRT]
ACPI: Handling Garbled _PRT entry
ACPI Warning (rscreate-0301): (PRT[24].Source) SourceName and SourceIndex are reversed, fixed [20080609]
ACPI Error (rscreate-0388): (PRT[24].SourceIndex) Need Integer, found Reference [20080609]
ACPI Exception (pci_irq-0303): AE_BAD_DATA, Evaluating _PRT [AE_BAD_DATA] [20080609]
ACPI: PCI Interrupt Link [LNKA] (IRQs 1 3 4 5 6 7 *10 11 12 14 15)
ACPI: PCI Interrupt Link [LNKB] (IRQs 1 3 4 5 6 7 10 *11 12 14 15)
ACPI: PCI Interrupt Link [LNKC] (IRQs 1 3 4 5 6 7 10 *11 12 14 15)
ACPI: PCI Interrupt Link [LNKD] (IRQs 1 3 4 5 6 7 10 11 12 14 15) *9

looks like a bios problem.
there was a change in the kernel which should handle that, i.e. work around such problems. it seems, that it sometimes makes things worse than before.

in your 2.6.24 dmesg, you have 4 entries "Handling Garbled _PRT entry" - with 2.6.27 you have only one and it seems to fail there.

could you try acpi=strict as bootparam to see if it makes a difference ?
please, also check if there is a bios update for your system.
Comment 15 paul 2008-12-29 14:19:09 UTC
No difference with acpi=strict as boot parameter
And no update for my bios unfortunately :(

Comment 16 Roland Kletzing 2008-12-29 16:09:39 UTC
apparently, this one http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commit;h=2f894ef9c8b36a35d80709bedca276d2fc691941

made me believe, that acpi=strict would also apply for this one:

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commit;h=d0e184abc5983281ef189db2c759d65d56eb1b80

but i was wrong. 

after taking a look into the code, it seems that there is no "backward compatibility switch" for this. 

i think i`m not skilled enough to help further here.  maybe pci=noacpi is worth another try, but it`s just another guess....

unfortunately, i cannot reassign to acpi people. paul, can you change product from drivers to acpi ?
Comment 17 paul 2008-12-30 00:17:26 UTC
reassigned to acpi people
Comment 18 paul 2008-12-30 00:21:25 UTC

Comment 19 ykzhao 2008-12-30 19:43:53 UTC
Hi, Paul
    Will you please attach the output of acpidump?
    How about adding the boot option of "pci=noacpi" in 2.6.27 kernel?
    Thanks.
Comment 20 paul 2008-12-31 01:16:35 UTC
How can I obtain the output of apcidump?

Comment 21 paul 2008-12-31 01:41:17 UTC
with pci=noapci option, the kernel fails to boot :(

I did not use the option.

I am back for one week and half. So I can perform some tests :D

Kernel 2.6.26 and kernel 2.6.27 patched with patch fail to boot and give the same error

Since the kernel fails to boot, how can I obtain the right dmesg output. I assume that if I boot with a other kernel, I shall not obtian the dmesg of the failing kernel

Comment 39 Anders Henke 2009-03-31 10:21:04 UTC
patch-revert-5e8c5dd does somehow solve bug 12976 (it re-introduces interrupts for the various cards), but introduces a new problem:

[    2.750330] 3ware Storage Controller device driver for Linux v1.26.02.002.

So after all, the system is unusable both using as well as avoiding this patch.
Comment 40 Anders Henke 2009-03-31 15:01:48 UTC
Sidenote, commenting myself: booting the patched box with "acpi=noirq" makes the box boot normally, so the "Command timed out, resetting card"-issue looks like acpi is its reason and not an issue of the 3w-xxxx driver.
Comment 41 Anders Henke 2009-04-01 15:24:49 UTC
Another box popped up with a slight variation of the same problem:
Interrupts are configured and set via ACPI, but the LAN card didn't work.

Booting the box with acpi=noirq solves that issue.

Unluckily, the box is not attached to a serial console (it's a non-redundant console server :), so posting boot messages is somehow a problem. And bisecting for that box is also quite a problem, due to the lack of serial console and high-security placement (booting that box does take about half an hour of time, as it is located in a specially secured and locked cabinet).

That server has a completely different hardware configuration than noted in bug bug 12976 and as the symptoms do differ quite a lot, this also might be a completely different issue than bug 12976 or bug 12270.

The box stalls quite early during boot

-using acpi=noirq
-using both acpi=no and noacpi

The box hasn't had trouble for the last five years, but I wouldn't want to rule out some hardware problem. However, booting the box with "nosmp" works without any more problems.

Comment 46 Zhang Rui 2009-04-03 01:07:25 UTC
please apply the patch in comment #44 and attach the screenshot when it hangs without any boot parameters.

the dmesg you attached in commnet #45 suggested that the patch is not applied.
e.g. "[    0.783512] ACPI: Handling Garbled _PRT entry", this is already removed in my patch.
Comment 47 Anders Henke 2009-04-06 09:03:29 UTC
I've taken the chance to wipe out my kernel build dir and replace it with a fresh 2.6.29.1, applied with the patch from comment #44.

First boot attempt:

Booting the box with acpi=off or acpi=noirq still works fine.

Second boot attempt, same kernel als in comment #47, but using "noacpi";
the kernel also stalls during boot:

serial console boot log

Yet few more boot logs, captured from the serial console, all using the same kernel (2.6.29.1, patch from comment #44).

-Try 1: acpi=noirq: stalls
-Try 2: acpi=noirq: stalls (at different position)
-Try 3: acpi=noirq: boots sucessfully
-Try 4: acpi=noirq: stalls a few milliseconds after the same position like during 2nd try.
-Try 5: acpi=off: stalls (?!)
-Try 6: nosmp: boots successfully

The fifth try looks very strange, as acpi has been turned off and 
shouldn't interfere with anything else.
Comment 50 Zhang Rui 2009-04-07 03:18:20 UTC
please also attach the dmesg output w/o any boot parameters and
1. w/o the patch in comment #44
2. w/o the patch in comment #44 but w/ the patch in comment #33

Note that attaching these logs as attachments is okay.
or else it makes me hard to go through the bug report. thanks.
Comment 51 Anders Henke 2009-04-07 08:20:51 UTC
Sigh - the various stalls from #49 seem to be related to some odd bios settings.

After resetting the BIOS to defaults and reconfiguring the box to the same settings as before, the box no longer stalls during boot, but reverts to its old behaviour, described in bug #12976: without any patches or boot parameters, ACPI doesn't seem to correctly assign interrupts to the raid controller, so the box sees no root file system and panics.

For future testing, I've saved /dev/nvram into a file, so I can revert my bios settings to some known state.

I'll patch and compile various kernels and keep you posted ...
Comment 52 Anders Henke 2009-04-07 08:45:58 UTC
The box has successfully been booted using 2.6.29.1 with the patch from 
comment #33 three times: three attempts to boot, all of them were successful.

Using only the patch from comment #44 results in an interrupt assignment problem:

serial console boot log of 2.6.29.1, using patch from comment #44

2.6.29.1, using only the patch from comment #44. The kernel fails to boot the system, as the interrupt assignment for the raid controller is somehow broken.
Comment 57 Zhang Rui 2009-04-07 09:17:41 UTC
then what about the patch in comment #25? I think that one should work for you.

Comment 59 Shaohua 2009-04-08 01:24:19 UTC
comment #58 mentioned patch from comment #25 fixed the issue.

Rui, will you push the patch?
Comment 60 Zhang Rui 2009-04-08 01:45:16 UTC
done.

I've just tried the patch in http://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/16983/

Unfortunately, it did not fix my problem.
Comment 62 paul 2009-04-18 17:05:59 UTC
I forgot to mention that I applied the patch against the kernel 2.6.29.1 .

right, the patch itself seems to be good and it would be shipped upstream soon.
I suspect that there is another problem on paul's laptop and I hope that the serial console boot log or the screen shot can tell us more.

paul,
can you build and boot the latest upstream 2.6.30-rc kernel?
can you attach the .config for the working and failing kernels?

the patch in comment #25 is shipped in 2.6.30-rc4.

paul,
please attach the initrd image of 2.6.30-rc3 you're using,
please set CONFIG_ATA_AHCI=y and see if it helps.
Comment 71 paul 2009-05-21 11:37:51 UTC
Wahoo, this bug is fixed.

Mandriva backported the patch in an update of their kernels.

And now everything is working.

The kernel panic I obtained was caused by the fact I configured the kernel thanks to make oldconfig. Then my root partition was recognized as /dev/hda from the kernel 2-6-24. With the newest kernel, my root partition is /dev/sda. Obviously, when booting, that caused a kernel panic.

So, I did a fresh install of my whole Linux distrib (with the patched kernel of Mandriva), and that works.

Thanks a lot, guys for your great job.

And sorry for the noise.

Marking this bug as FIXED.
