Subject[REGRESSION] NMI received for unknown reason 3c on CPU 0, strange powersaving mode?
Date
Hi!

Since some time I am seeing things like

Message from syslogd@merkaba at Mar 30 00:29:30 ...
kernel:[49074.294260] Uhhuh. NMI received for unknown reason 3c on CPU 0.

Message from syslogd@merkaba at Mar 30 00:29:30 ...
kernel:[49074.294263] Do you have a strange power saving mode enabled?

Message from syslogd@merkaba at Mar 30 00:29:30 ...
kernel:[49074.294264] Dazed and confused, but trying to continue

on resume after in-kernel hibernation.

I do not see any trace of it in syslog, kern.log or dmesg.

From the timestemp it seems that these messages are issued shortly before
I send the laptop to hibernation last night.


I am using a ThinkPad T520 with Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2520M CPU @ 2.50GHz
and Sandybridge graphics.

I am not exactly sure since when it happens, cause I basically ignored it
for quite some time. Might be some 3.2 kernel where it started, maybe even
the first 3.2 kernel I had. Currently I am using:

martin@merkaba:~> cat /proc/version
Linux version 3.3.0-trunk-amd64 (Debian 3.3-1~experimental.1) (debian-
kernel@lists.debian.org) (gcc version 4.6.3 (Debian 4.6.3-1) ) #1 SMP Thu
Mar 22 18:02:10 UTC 2012

Since I am quite sure I didn´t see this with the first kernel I used on
this machine, which was a 2.6.39 if I remember correctly, I consider this
to be a regression for now.


I did not see any other strange effects, only this message.


When searching for it I see quite some references¹. But what I looked at
seemed to either quite old or different in that the machine was frozen
then.


There seems to be some hints that its related to USB power management.

Here is what powertop says about the autosuspend settings - I did not
change anything in there:

But I think I have seen it at work as well where I use different USB
devices (except for the builtin) and no Minidock for now.


As for other settings that might be related:

/etc/grub/default:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="threadirqsi init=/bin/systemd"

Which is currently not used due to my Vim typo in there.

I am using systemd only since last week and think that I have seen the
message before.


Anyway, if you suggest to alter some settings, please tell me and I will
try it.

If you need additional info like dmidecode or something please tell me as
well.
