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


I was about to test latest upstream kernel as suggested by Christopher,
but I guess it is not needed anymore : today's automatic updates
contained a new kernel (3.19.0-30-generic) that seems to solve the issue
(no more IRQ msg).

Thanks for taking care of it

  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 !
