[Bug 1578358] Re: Bug with wistron_btns while booting


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
v4.7-rc1 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.

Status in Linux Mint:
Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:

  I've successfully installed Linux Mint XCFE 17.1 on my (old) notebook,
  but the computer is blocked during the boot. It seems that
  wistron_btns is the problem.

  The error I get are (see log) :

  "BUG: soft lockup - CPU#0 stuck for 23s! [systemd-udevd:402]"
  "wistron_btns: Unknown key code 70"

  My computer is a Medion WIM 2030 with :
  - Pentium M 1.7 (non-PAE, I've installed Mint with forcepae)
  - 1,25 Go RAM
  - 80 Go hard disk
  - Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network connection
  - Some buttons to active the wifi, open Firefox,... that work well with Windows XP (dual boot)

  What can I do to make it boot ?

  Thanks for your help !
