ACPI Error Method parse/execution failed HP ZBook 15 G4

Very similar to bug reported at 
https://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-acpi/msg82058.html and Bug 195237

Have to set "acpi=off" to boot.  Without it, the machine will stuck with error message like "cpu#1 stuck for 22s".

Attached is acpidump file.


Following is output of dmesg:

        Name (TRIP, Package (0x05)
        {
            Package (0x04){}, 
            Package (0x04){}, 
            Package (0x04){}, 
            Package (0x04){}, 
            Package (0x04){}
        })

So TRIP has five elements.

        Method (GETP, 2, Serialized)
        {
            Local0 = Arg1
            If ((Arg1 == One))
            {
                Local3 = DerefOf (CUZO [Arg0])
                If (((Local3 > One) && (Local3 != 0xFF)))
                {
                    Local0 = Zero
                }
            }

            Local2 = DerefOf (DerefOf (TRIP [Arg0]) [Local0])
            Return (Local2)
        }

GETP uses Arg0 as the index of TRIP[].

            Method (_CRT, 0, Serialized)  // _CRT: Critical Temperature
            {
                Return (GETP (0x05, 0x03))
            }

Arg0 is 0x05 which is broken, so this is a BIOS bug.

        Method (WVPO, 2, Serialized)
        {
            Local1 = Buffer ((0x08 + Arg0)){}
            ...
        }
I'm not sure if this is the ASL code that causes the error because I have not seen any ASL written like this.

Erik, could you please clarify?
BTW, the acpidump is attached in comment #0.
Comment 5 Erik Schmauss 2019-04-15 20:43:49 UTC
Hey, sorry for the late response. I think the _DSM type mismatch should be resolved in newer kernels. Please try a newer kernel (post 4.17).

@Rui, the ASL code above shouldn't cause an error due to implicit type conversions. The add operator (+) causes Arg0 to be converted to Arg0..
Comment 6 Zhang Rui 2019-07-01 06:07:03 UTC
Bug closed as there is no response from the bug reporter.
Please feel free to reopen it if the problem still exists in the latest upstream kernel, say 5.1 or 5.2-rc.
