    SubjectRE: IO-APIC on nforce2 [PATCH] + [PATCH] for nmi_debug=1 + [PATCH] for idle=C1halt, 2.6.5
    Date
    From
    I'm happy to be able to make this information public to the Linux
    community. This information has been previously released to BIOS /
    board vendors as an appnote, but in the interest of getting a workaround
    into the hands of users the quickest we're making it public for possible
    inclusion into the Linux kernel.


    Problem:
    C1 Halt Disconnect problem on nForce2 systems

    Description:
    A hang is caused when the CPU generates a very fast CONNECT/HALT cycle
    sequence.

    Workaround:
    Set the SYSTEM_IDLE_TIMEOUT to 80 ns. This allows the state-machine and
    timer to return to a proper state within 80 ns of the CONNECT and probe
    appearing together.

    Since the CPU will not issue another HALT within 80 ns of the initial
    HALT, the failure condition is avoided.

    This will require changing the value for register at bus:0 dev:0 func:0
    offset 6c.

    Chip Current Value New Value
    C17 1F0FFF01 1F01FF01
    C18D 9F0FFF01 9F01FF01

    Northbridge chip version may be determined by reading the PCI revision
    ID (offset 8) of the host bridge at bus:0 dev:0 func:0. C1 or greater
    is C18D.
