[Bug 1500156] Re: r592 IRQ: DMA errors cause log files to grow *HUGE*


Laurent Martin-Borret, thank you for reporting this and helping make
Ubuntu better. Could you please test the latest upstream kernel
available from the very top line at the top of the page from
http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/?C=N;O=D (the release
names are irrelevant for testing, and please do not test the daily
folder)? Install instructions are available at
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds . This will allow
additional upstream developers to examine the issue.

If the latest kernel did not allow you to test to the issue (ex. you couldn't boot into the OS) please make a comment in your report about this, and continue to test the next most recent kernel version until you can test to the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this issue is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon, next to the word Tags, located at the bottom of the report description:

Where X, Y, and Z are numbers corresponding to the kernel version.

If the mainline kernel does not fix the issue, please add the following tags:

Please note, an error to install the kernel does not fit the criteria of

Once testing of the latest upstream kernel is complete, please mark this
report's Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results.

Thank you for your understanding.

  r592 IRQ: DMA errors cause log files to grow *HUGE*

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
Status in openSUSE:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Since some recent time, my log files (syslog & kern.log) grow huge, making the computer unusable when it performs logrotate operations.
  Having a look to that, I see it contains many many lines :
  Sep 27 09:50:44 mmb-laptop kernel: [42839.496635] r592: IRQ: DMA error
  Sep 27 09:50:44 mmb-laptop kernel: [42839.599027] r592: IRQ: card added

  It seems related to this device : Ricoh Co Ltd R5C592 Memory Stick Bus Host Adapter (rev 12)
  I do not use it and I do not need it for now.

  I am using Ubuntu 15.04 with latest updates (as of 27-sep-2015),
  kernel 3.19.0-28-generic #30-Ubuntu on x86_64.

  I've read some posts/other bug reports related to the same issue :





  I would be glad if some solution is proposed to stop filling these
  logs !
