I get this when resuming from s2idle, why?

Hi Patrik,
Please upload the acpidump file. It looks like a BIOS table issue from first glance. Let me add acpi expert Lv.
Comment 2 Patrik Kullman 2017-07-24 20:27:41 UTC
Created attachment 257691 [details]
acpidump -o acpidump

Comment 3 Lv Zheng 2017-07-31 06:02:03 UTC
If the table was correct and wasn't customized, decoded _Q66 is as follows:

            Method (_Q66, 0, NotSerialized)  // _Qxx: EC Query
                Acquire (PATM, 0x0064)
                If ((ECRD == One))
                    NEVT ()

                Release (PATM)
                Return (Zero)

Again if the table was correct, it looks the mutex mechanism failed to work properly throughout suspend/resume process. Then this looks not a BIOS table issue.
Comment 4 Lv Zheng 2017-07-31 06:03:45 UTC
Please also upload full dmesg output containing this problematic suspend/resume process and boot with acpi.trace_state=enable here.

You need to configure CONFIG_ACPI_DEBUG and recompile the kernel.
Comment 5 Patrik Kullman 2017-08-02 12:01:32 UTC
I have not done something else than acpidump with the table - how can it be customized?

Will try to get a hold of an acpi debug kernel, have prepared with the boot parameter.
Comment 6 Lv Zheng 2017-08-03 02:54:30 UTC
Then we need to debug, could you check comment 4 and continue?
Comment 7 Rafael J. Wysocki 2017-08-07 20:43:52 UTC
This evidently is an AML bug.

The code quoted in comment #3 uses Acquire() with a timeout, but it doesn't check the return value and invokes Release() even if the mutex wasn't actually acquired due to the timeout.

That invocation of Release() is what ACPICA is complaining about with quite arguably is correct.

Thanks to Mika for input here and closing as invalid.
Comment 8 Patrik Kullman 2017-08-07 21:13:24 UTC
This was literally updated during my kernel compile :)

So this bug should be reported where?

Dell for a BIOS update? What's AML ?
Comment 9 Lv Zheng 2017-08-08 02:28:16 UTC
You should have no functional problem with such error.

The code provided by the firmware to be executed by the kernel.  IOW, firmware issue, so yes, Dell for BIOS update.
