  Problems with gpe06 interrupt storm on a 2016 Macbook Pro

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I also reported this upstream
  (https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=117481), just reporting
  this here so that the upstream fix does not get lost in the noise:


  - With a freshly installed Ubuntu 16.04 (but also occurs using the live CD/USB) on a 2016 Macbook Pro (hardware version MacBookPro11,2) CPU core is 80-90% pegged with kworker:
  12772 root      20   0       0      0      0 R  84,1  0,0  15:37.79 kworker/0:6

  - When doing grep . -r /sys/firmware/acpi/interrupts/ I see a lot of interrupts on gpe06:
  /sys/firmware/acpi/interrupts/gpe06:222309848   enabled

  - Disabling gpe06 frees up the core without any noticeable side-effects:
  # echo disable > /sys/firmware/acpi/interrupts/gpe06

  I put the above in the root crontab with @reboot which solved the
  problem for me for now.
