Hi, please find below a list of related bugs to a blocker that affects existing systems and even prevents the installation of several Linux distributions:

https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=199267
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=201129
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1608242

I read about an upstream fix to 4.20 but this is a long way to go. I guess that anyone who keeps their AM4 BIOS AGESA Code update-to-date and would like to run Linux is affected.

A co-operation between AMD & Linux Kernel experts to achieve a solution fast is encouraged. Thank you!

Hi,

The workaround to handle this FW bug has been submitted last month

https://marc.info/?l=linux-crypto-vger&m=153436754612783&w=2

And patch is accepted in crypto tree

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/herbert/crypto-2.6.git/commit/?id=3702a0585e64d70d5bf73bf3e943b8d6005b72c1

It will soon show up in Linus tree. After that we will work to get it
backport to stable tree's.
