[Bug 1363462] Re: Crucial M550 1TB SSD missing from NCQ TRIM blacklist


I have the same problem with two  Crucial 1TB M550s:

 [    4.094763] ata4.00: ATA-9: Crucial_CT1024M550SSD1, MU01, max UDMA/133
 [    4.095063] ata3.00: ATA-9: Crucial_CT1024M550SSD1, MU01, max UDMA/133

and have suffered data-loss in a RAID1 config that required a reinstall.
I also see the errors on my two other Intel SSDs:

 [    4.096849] ata2.00: ATA-9: INTEL SSDSC2BW120A4, DC32, max UDMA/133
 [    4.097088] ata1.00: ATA-9: INTEL SSDSC2BW120A4, DC32, max UDMA/133

however the Intel SSDs do not seem to have suffered data loss.  A sample
error from syslog, on one of the Intel SSDs:

Adding libata.force=noncq to
/etc/default/grub:GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT has stopped the errors for
the last 5-days, and there have been no spontaneous RAID1 resyncs.

  Crucial M550 1TB SSD missing from NCQ TRIM blacklist

Status in The Linux Kernel:
Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I own a Crucial/Micron M550 1TB SSD which does has data loss when using NCQ TRIM.
  The current Ubuntu Trusty kernel has a blacklist which matches all M550 SSDs except the 1024 GB (1 TB) version because the matching pattern is limited to 3 digits for size. Upstream Linux has fixed this bug already:


  Please try to get this merged and tell me where I can start an
  installation with a fixed kernel so I won't have a corrupt disk
  already on the end of the installation. Thanks!
