[Bug 1447053] Re: IO_PAGE_FAULT


Actually, you helped more than you think. :-)

So I did a little reading about the IOMMU issue and the problem is that
IOMMU itself is not the problem.  It just shows the real problem (I
think this is not new news, really.)  Anyway, the problem appears to be
the xhci_hcd device driver that I cannot disable.  I still don't
understand how that impacts the ethernet device driver, though.

I added the iommu=soft option to the boot menu and it seems that the
kernel is more lenient in treating the xhci_hcd mis-behavior and things
seem to work fine now.  So I guess I'll have to make option permanent
for the boot image.  That means I need to do that for every kernel
update.  Yuck.

Thanks so much.

Bug description:
  Since a couple of weeks I'm experiencing a problem with my
  motherboard. For some reason the network goes randomly offline and I
  get a error messages about AMD-Vi.

  [ 6462.248434] AMD-Vi: Event logged [IO_PAGE_FAULT device=04:00.0
  domain=0x0019 address=0x0000000000003000 flags=0x0050]

  I didn't changed anything except for the internet modem is changed and
  I installed updates as I always do. When using google I see there are
  more people with this problem exactly the same motherboard, I find
  this strange because my pc is almost a year old and I never had this
  problem. Could it be a problem in the kernel of *ubuntu 14.04?
