[Bug 1041790]


Created attachment 89314
i915_error_state (kernel 3.11.6, mesa 9.2.2, xf86-video-intel 2.99.906)

GPU hangs after playing hedgewars for a few minutes. Thinkpad T420 laptop, i5-2520M.
dmesg error message:

  [snb] GPU lockup  IPEHR: 0x0b160001 IPEHR: 0x0b140001, workaround

Bug description:
  X locks up periodically for a 2 to ten seconds at a time and this
  crash log gets generated. It's significantly more than several times a
  day but not quite continuous.

  Temporarily disabiling semaphores seems to eliminate the problem.

  $ sudo -s
  # echo 0 > /sys/modules/i915/parameters/semaphores

  1.  Edit your /etc/default/grub file.
  2.  Change this line:

      GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"


      GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash i915.semaphores=0"

  3.  Then run

      sudo update-grub

  4.  And reboot

  If you indeed have this bug, that should stop the lockups from happening.
  If it doesn't, then file a new bug report.

  Side Effects:  Rendering throughput is dropped by 10% with SNA, or as
  much as 3x with UXA. OpenGL performance is likely to be reduced by
  about 30%. More CPU time is spent waiting for the GPU with rc6
  disabled, so increased power consumption.
