I don't know the connection between ASPM and package C-states, so I
need to simplify this even more. All I want to do right now is verify
that if we don't have any outside influences on the ASPM configuration
(eg, no manual changes and no udev rules), it stays the same across
In https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=208117#c12, we saw that
ASPM L0s was disabled before suspend but was enabled after resume.
That should not happen.
You're looking at the sysfs link/l1_aspm file, which tells us what the
PCI core thinks the state is, but I'm not confident that's accurate,
especially because the driver fiddles with the state behind the back
of the PCI core. So let's read the ASPM state directly from the
hardware like this:
sudo lspci -vvs 00:1d.0 | egrep "^0|Lnk|L1|LTR|snoop"
sudo lspci -vvs 01:00 | egrep "^0|Lnk|L1|LTR|snoop"
Can you try that before and after suspend/resume?
