[PATCH v2 0/2] iommu/vt-d bad RMRR workarounds
From: Barret Rhoden
Date: Tue Jan 07 2020 - 14:16:24 EST
Commit f036c7fa0ab6 ("iommu/vt-d: Check VT-d RMRR region in BIOS is
reported as reserved") caused a machine to fail to boot for me, but only
after a kexec.
Buggy firmware provided an RMRR entry with base and end both == 0. That
is an invalid RMRR format, and only happens to pass the RMRR sanity
check. After a kexec, that entry fails the RMRR sanity check, due to a
slight change in the first e820 mapping. See the v1 link for details.
- Added the TAINT_FIRMWARE_WORKAROUND
- Dropped the commit that treated missing e820 regions as "RMRR OK"
Barret Rhoden (2):
iommu/vt-d: skip RMRR entries that fail the sanity check
iommu/vt-d: skip invalid RMRR entries
