[Bug 1574721] Re: IRQ Storm during Mate 16.04 install


Did this issue start happening after an update/upgrade?  Was there a
prior kernel version where you were not having this particular problem?

Would it be possible for you to test the latest upstream kernel? Refer
to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds . Please test the latest
v4.6 kernel[0].

If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following
tag 'kernel-fixed-upstream'.

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug as

Thanks in advance.

  IRQ Storm during Mate 16.04 install

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This is odd - and it appears to be in the kernel but since I'm still
  feeling my way around I thought someone here would be able to send it
  to the right place.

  This issue affected a 15" Macbook Pro running kernel on T7400
  Dual Core 2.16 GHz with Radeon graphics. It's quite an elderly machine
  and suitable for a more modern OS since Apple no longer supports it.

  When running the live disk I noticed the mouse was "sluggish" and
  eventually the whole thing ground to a shuddering stop. On second try,
  I switched on all the normal options and got it installed to the hard
  drive but I could not even log onto a terminal (switching from GUI to
  a console).

  Third time I switched the CD into text mode by appending the "TEXT"
  switch (removing QUIET and NOSPLASH) and ran the live disk: what do
  you know, it worked like a charm, installed without any incidents and
  rebooted correctly.

  I'm currently upgrading the system to see if that creates any further
