[Bug 1591521] Re: Kernel Does not recognize some USB 3.0 hard drives


jkeelercox@xxxxxxxxx, the next step is to fully commit bisect from
kernel 3.13 to 4.4 in order to identify the last good kernel commit,
followed immediately by the first bad one. This will allow for a more
expedited analysis of the root cause of your issue. Could you please do
this following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/KernelBisection ?

Please note, finding adjacent kernel versions is not fully commit

Also, the kernel release names are irrelevant for the purposes of

After the offending commit (not kernel version) has been identified,
then please mark this report Status Confirmed.

Thank you for your help.

  Kernel Does not recognize some USB 3.0 hard drives

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Running Ubuntu 16,04 in VMware Fusion on an Apple Mac Book Pro, when
  connecting a USB 3.0 external drive it does not mount. It seems to
  choke at the kernel level. dmesg shows incomplete loading, and never
  gets a device assigned.

  This works correctly in Ubuntu 14.04 on a VM and vanilla kernel

  Confirmed bug on different HW with kernel 4.4.10 imac arch linux bare
