full dmesg output

After updating BIOS to revision 3207 on my Asus P8P67-EVO, the Marvell SATA controller no longer works apparently due to ACPI failures. (Fortunately, the P67 chipset SATA controller works just fine.)

Some ACPI related lines that look like errors from dmesg (entire dmesg output attached). This is from 3.3.2 as I have an unrelated problem with 3.3.5; I also get similar error messages when booting 3.3.5.

Comment 2 Robert Moore 2012-05-16 19:02:37 UTC
As far as the namespace lookup errors:
>>ACPI Error: [DSSP] Namespace lookup failure, AE_NOT_FOUND

There is no DSSP object defined in any of the static ACPI tables. One of the SSDTs for this machine performs some dynamic table loads, so it may be the case that DSSP is defined in one of those. However, something is still wrong because the object cannot be found.

This looks like some kind of BIOS error and should be reported to the manufacturer.
Comment 3 Sami Liedes 2012-05-26 03:23:32 UTC
Unfortunately, the standard response from Asus to all such reports seems to be "We are not [sic] supporting Linux"...

So, these dynamic table loads would probably load those tables from the BIOS? I don't know much about ACPI, but I think I could learn and try to investigate this myself... Would appreciate any useful pointers though :)

hm,

I have similar problem - mobo: maximus iv extreme R3 P67, BIOS:3208:

asus technical support is really useless. I reported many BIOS errors but they don't care anyway. (does not really matter if error/s corresponding with windows or linux).

Comment 7 Javier Marcet 2012-08-14 10:44:24 UTC
I got an acpidump and disassembled the SDT tables.

The DSSP reference is within the SSDT2. It says:

        External (FHPP)
 
[ ... ]

        Device (SPT0)
        {
            Name (_ADR, 0xFFFF)
            Method (_GTF, 0, NotSerialized)
            {
                Store (Zero, CMDC)
                If (LOr (DSSP, FHPP))
                {
                    GTFB (STFD, 0x06)
                }
                Else
                {
                    GTFB (STFE, 0x06)
                }

                GTFB (FZTF, Zero)
                GTFB (DCFL, Zero)
                Return (SCBF)
            }
        }

The last part is repeated for every sata port.
Comment 8 Bjorn Helgaas 2012-11-29 17:12:50 UTC
Sami, I think you might be seeing two problems: (1) the ACPI DSSP namespace lookup issue, and (2) the DMA Read translation faults.  Since this bug report is mostly chasing (1), can you open a new bug report for the other?  Please attach the complete dmesg log and "lspci -vv" output, and cc: me (bhelgaas@google.com).  If it's possible to revert to the previous BIOS version, and if that makes any difference, please attach a dmesg log on that BIOS as well.

What really sucks (I'm sorry for using that word) is that this bug is present on a broad range of motherboards including Asus, Asrock and MSI, which tells me that this is not just a BIOS bug, it's a result of some change propagating from either Intel or Award (I'm inclined to think it's Intel's fault).
Comment 14 Robert Moore 2013-04-10 19:33:17 UTC
It's an AMI bios:

You're right, it's the same here.

As a vendor who stands beyond ACPI standards you could have talked to AMI and resolved this issue once and for all.
Comment 16 Lv Zheng 2013-04-17 11:43:57 UTC
Confirmed there is no DSSP, FHPP in the namespace.
They are referenced by SPTx._GTF methods.
        Device (SPT0)
        {
            Name (_ADR, 0xFFFF)  // _ADR: Address
            Method (_GTF, 0, NotSerialized)  // _GTF: Get Task File
            {
                Store (Zero, CMDC)
                If (LOr (DSSP, FHPP))
                {
                    GTFB (STFD, 0x06)
                }
                Else
                {
                    GTFB (STFE, 0x06)

So, what end users are supposed to do? OEMs will surely ignore our bug reports and requests saying their motherboards work just fine in Windows.

Intel has people, resources and power to talk to AMI and motherboard manufactures to fix this issue.

Saying this is "a BIOS bug" is not what Linux users expect to hear.

It can stop ATA_ACPI functionalities for me.
Please let me know if it works for your system, .
Comment 21 Lv Zheng 2013-04-19 06:40:41 UTC
We will also try to see if such error message can be converted to [firmware bug] in the ACPICA.
This is a BIOS bug, Linux can live with this by automatically disabling ATA_ACPI after several ACPI control methods execution failures.
Comment 22 Robert Moore 2013-04-23 18:55:51 UTC
I have an issue with converting exception codes and error/warning messages like this to always point a finger at the BIOS. The fact is that we don't always know for sure whether this is a BIOS problem or not. In some cases, it is likely to be the BIOS, but in other cases we don't really know the culprit until the problem is debugged.

The cases where we know for sure that we have a BIOS problem are things like (for example) when we find bad values in the FADT. As far as interpreter execution, however, there is always the chance that there is an interpreter bug, or some other problem associated more with ACPICA or the host OS rather than the BIOS itself.

Comment 23 Lv Zheng 2013-04-26 02:57:42 UTC
I will first change the bug category to BIOS.
Can we just change the error messages to [firmware bug] and debug each such error message for sure?
In Linux, useless error messages will also be treated as OS bug by the vendors as the real problems will be hidden by noises.
Comment 24 Robert Moore 2013-04-26 03:30:10 UTC
I do not think we can change such errors to "BIOS errors". Again, we do not know for sure. Moreover, this is slippery slope. Many, many ACPI errors can be traced back to the BIOS. Do we just make all errors "BIOS errors" and then "debug each such error message for sure"? I think not. Or convert all AML errors (AE_AML_*)? to BIOS errors? No.

The fact is that the error happened within the ACPI subsystem and that is what the message is intended to convey.

Fixing the blame on the BIOS is simply an attempt to guess at a root cause that the ACPICA software simply cannot do. It is wrong.

I'm willing to change the message to something a bit more helpful, and we can provide a mechanism to stop the "Not found" message after it has been displayed once for a given executing control method.
Comment 25 Len Brown 2013-05-07 00:00:20 UTC
per comment #8, 
please open a new bug about the functional issue.

This bug is about a broken BIOS causing Linux to spew
warning messages about a broken BIOS.
Ignore the messages, or get a computer from a vendor
that validates for Linux.

Closed as Documented -- will not fix.

Another datapoint:

I have a Zotac Zbox ID 18 tiny PC.  It has an Intel Celeron 1007U CPU.

BIOS information (from dmidecode):
        Vendor: American Megatrends Inc.
        Version: B211P011
        Release Date: 03/13/2014

I think that that is the latest released version.

dmesg shows me two errors:
