SubjectRE: [PATCH v4 0/2] cpufreq: intel_pstate: Implement passive mode with HWP enabled
Date
Hi Srinivas,

Thanks for your help. I was missing several needed patches.

I could not repeat your crash.

I tried booting with and without intel_pstate=passive
on the kernel command line and then switching back and
forth thereafter.

However, I do confirm EPP is messed up. But not min
and max from MSR 0x774, they behave as expected,
based on quick testing only.

Since you mentioned:

>>> Don't have a recipe to reproduce this.

Maybe I simply didn't hit whatever.

Useless additional stuff:

# cat /proc/cmdline
BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-5.8.0-rc7-dssp root=UUID=0ac356c1-caa9-4c2e-8229-4408bd998dbd ro ipv6.disable=1 consoleblank=450 intel_pstate=passive cpuidle_sysfs_switch cpuidle.governor=teo

Went "active" then "passive" and set ondemand governor. 2 X 100% CPU loads:
