[Bug 1491467] Re: kworker consuming cpu due to GPE13 interrupt storm on Fujitsu A544


Can you confirm the repo please, I get
$ git clone git://git.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-kernel/ubuntu/+source/linux/
Cloning into 'linux'...
fatal: remote error: Repository '~ubuntu-kernel/ubuntu/+source/linux' not found.

Alternatively is it fundamentally the same (as far as this exercise is concerned) as

  kworker consuming cpu due to GPE13 interrupt storm on Fujitsu A544

Status in Linux:
Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
  In Progress
Status in linux source package in Wily:
  In Progress

Bug description:
  On Fujitsu A544 laptop (and likely others) fitted with SSD, kworker
  takes 100% of one core of CPU due to GPE13 interrupt storm

  See upstream bug https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=53071

  The bug can be identified by repeatedly running 
  cat /sys/firmware/acpi/interrupts/gpe13
  where a rapidly increasing count will be seen.

  sudo sh -c 'echo "disable" > /sys/firmware/acpi/interrupts/gpe13'
  disables it until reboot
  sudo crontab -e
  and adding the line
  @reboot echo "disable" > /sys/firmware/acpi/interrupts/gpe13
  works around for subsequent boots.
