[Bug 1528007] Re: bcmwl driver locks up system


I have the same issue with kernel 4.6 (vanilla) & the all 6.3 versions of the bcmwl driver.
The 248 driver paired with the 4.4.8 ubuntu kernel seems to be working fine for now.

  bcmwl driver locks up system

Status in bcmwl package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:

  % lspci |grep -i BCM
  03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4360 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter (rev 03)

  % dmesg|grep BCM
  [    6.143332] Bluetooth: hci0: BCM: Read verbose config info failed (-16)
  [ 1676.017551] wlan0: Broadcom BCM43a0 802.11 Hybrid Wireless Controller (r487574)

  I sometimes see weird lockup in the kernel:
   1778.501345] WARNING: CPU: 3 PID: 6455 at /build/linux-jHWiKd/linux-3.13.0/kernel/watchdog.c:24
  5 watchdog_overflow_callback+0x9c/0xd0()
  [ 1778.501347] Watchdog detected hard LOCKUP on cpu 3

  This happens with kernel 3.19 *and* kernel 4.2. Unloading the `wl`
  module makes the system more stable, so it's def. this module.
