Kernel log (excerpt) from booting 5.8.7 with trackpad attached

Arch Linux, with linux-5.8.7-arch1-1 and linux-5.8.8-arch1-1, last known good kernel is linux-5.8.6-arch1-1

When booting the system while an Apple Magic Trackpad 2 is connected to USB, multiple general protection faults occur, which usually prevent the system from booting up to a usable state.

However, no kernel errors occur and everything seems to work properly when booting e.g. linux-5.8.8-arch1-1 without the trackpad and attaching it later. Suspend/resume while the trackpad is connected also seems to work.

The trackpad is connected via an external USB 2.0 hub.
Here some hopefully useful info, both obtained on 5.8.8 with the trackpad connected after bootup:

Also see the respective distribution-specific bug report [1].
I am attaching the same kernel log from that report here.

Could you please check, if this is somehow related to bug 210241?

Does this patch make a difference?

This patch is currently in the Arch Linux kernel (5.10 series). As it has been rejected upstream I will not carry it into the 5.11 series. If you still care about this issue, please get it fixes upstream.
Comment 3 José Expósito 2021-05-16 09:06:30 UTC
Hi Jan,

I'm experimenting similar issues, so I submitted a patch upstream:
https://lore.kernel.org/patchwork/patch/1423070/

I'd be really helpful if you could test the patch and confirm if it solved the issue also for your hardware and kernel.

Thanks a lot in advance,
Jose
