SubjectRe: [Bug 43331] Re: Bug on bootup of Linux kernel on Panasonic Toughbook S10
Hi Bill and Bjorn,
Device 8086:0103 is "2nd Generation Core Processor Family Thermal Management
Controller" or "Sandy Bridge Thermal Management Controller". And address range
0xfed98000-0xfed9ffff has been reserved by motherboard device(PNP0C02).
I guess that BIOS has assigned address "0xfed98000" to 0000:00:04.0 for
thermal management functionality. The BAR0 of 0000:00:04.0 may be locked down
(can't be changed by OS) because the ACPI BIOS may have dependency on the assigned
address ranges. A ACPI dump may give some help here if convenient.
Thanks!
Gerry
