[Bug 1496290] Re: System freeze due to "angry" nouveau driver


I have back-ported commit adc346b133c952ec6988d90f6fa79cbe0a3eb7ef to
Ubuntu-lts-3.19.0-30.33_14.04.1 from git://kernel.ubuntu.com/ubuntu
/ubuntu-trusty.git and I can confirm that the bug has not manifested
itself ever since.

How can I contribute the back-ported patch into the Ubuntu kernel 3.19?

  System freeze due to "angry" nouveau driver

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Starting with the 3.19 kernels (Vivid), the system frequently freezes
  in the nouveau driver, with the following lines (w/ out timestamp and
  hostname) always being reported in "/var/log/kern.log" and/or
  "/var/log/syslog" just before the system becomes unresponsive and a
  hard reset becomes necessary.

  nouveau E[ PFIFO][0000:01:00.0] still angry after 101 spins, halt

  The bug is also reported in
  https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=87244, and the fix seems
  to be to cherry pick
  which is included in Linux 4.0 (if I am not mistaken).

  Here's some more info:
