Hi Greg,

Thanks for the response.

We did some bisecting/testing and identified the bad commit in 3.2.12 as
the following:

f043ddb60c84ea64a23b755004572afe922e653c PCI: ignore pre-1.1 ASPM
quirking when ASPM is disabled
diff --git a/drivers/pci/pcie/aspm.c b/drivers/pci/pcie/aspm.c
index 1cfbf22..24f049e 100644
- --- a/drivers/pci/pcie/aspm.c
+++ b/drivers/pci/pcie/aspm.c
@@ -500,6 +500,9 @@ static int pcie_aspm_sanity_check(struct pci_dev *pdev)
int pos;
u32 reg32;

+ if (aspm_disabled)
+ return 0;
+
/*
* Some functions in a slot might not all be PCIe functions,
* very strange. Disable ASPM for the whole slot

Building a test kernel with this commit reverted allows the machines to
boot. I see there has already been some discussion on this commit[0]

Thanks,

Joe
