Subjectnext-20130709 DMAR issues
From
Date
Dell Latitude E6530.

Seeing a new error message crop up in next-0709 that wasn't there with 0703.
Particularly odd, last person to touch dmar.c was on 05/20/2013, so no smoking
guns there...

egrep -i 'dmar|linux ver' /var/log/messages gives me:

That's what it usually says. But now I have:

Now I have 3 extra messages talking about handling a fault status. lspci says 00:1f.2 is:

00:1f.2 SATA controller: Intel Corporation 7 Series Chipset Family 6-port SATA Controller [AHCI mode] (rev 04)

I found similar in a thread here: http://lkml.indiana.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1212.1/02319.html
which ended with Don Dutile saying:

"DMAR table does not have an entry for this device to this region.
Once the driver reconfigs/resets the device to stop polling bios-boot
cmd rings and use (new) OS (dma-mapped) rings, there's a period of time
during this transition that the hw is babbling away to an area that is no
longer mapped."

But I'm not convinced this is the same issue - why did it change between 0703 and 0709,
when I haven't updated the firmware. No relevant .config changes between the two, either.

If this doesn't ring any bells, I'l go do the bisect thing...
