kernel config

In dmesg, I see tons of these messages:

...

they are repeated many many times, in particular if disk I/O occurs.

According to lspci -tv, port 0000:00:1d.0 is connected my SSD:

I don't know much about these errors. I do not know whether I should worry, for example.
I do not know what this replay timer means, but might this have something to do with putting the SSD in sleep mode? Can the replay timer timeout be increased somehow, maybe? Is my SSD overheating maybe?

The System is a Dell XPS 9560 (Kaby Lake). The kernel config is attached.

I have the following kernel parameters set, to be able to use bumblebee: pcie_port_pm=off acpi_rev_override
Comment 1 Sven Köhler 2017-06-25 01:14:57 UTC
The obvious workaround is to be ignorant and disable AER altogether via pci=noaer
Comment 2 Jean-Louis Dupond 2017-12-22 10:48:47 UTC
Hi All,

I got the same problem on a the (almost) same laptop (Dell Precision 5520).

We could indeed disable aer, buts thats not a FIX ofcourse :)

I receive the following messages on a 4.15-rc4 (drm-tip) kernel:

I hope this can be pinpointed and fixed!
Please let me know if additional information is needed!

Thanks

The Arch Linux Wiki suggests the following workaround:
pci=nommconf

I haven't seen the error since I am using this option.

Comment 4 Sven Köhler 2020-03-17 20:38:35 UTC
Same laptop (Dell XPS 9560) now running Linux 5.5.9. Unless I am using pci=nommconf, I still get the AER errors.

What is going on? Shouldn't the Dell XPS 9560 be added to some sort of blacklist, maybe? Do I really need to use pci=nommconf or is there some other workaround that has less sideeffects?

Any help appreciated.

Hi Sven,

> has less sideeffects?

according to https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=233230,
one could use pci=noaer to just disable AER:

"it seems disabling AER should be safe, and you are still left with basic PCIe error reporting capabilities. AER is just for "advanced" error reporting."
