@Distorted That would be great, unless i'm the only one using bbswitch-ck and it is not worth effort.

@kyak I removed bbswitch-ck from the AUR because of dkms, do you want me to put it back?

kyak commented on 2016-08-20 17:42

It looks like bbswitch-ck is gone from AUR. I don't want to use bbswitch-dkms, are there any other options?

Bump to v4.7.2-1

@asuh - CK gave the go-ahead so I will include it in 4.7.2-1 once it is available.

If that's true (the lack of support for SMT_NICE) you will need to patch the source prior to building or email CK to ask him to include it in the ck1 patchset as I think your hardware is in the minority of users. I don't want to just apply a patch that without CK's blessing particularly when the code doesn't help 99% of the users :)

@graysky thanks for pointing it out. Are you suggesting the panic can only be workarounded by setting CONFIG_SMT_NICE=y given that AMD processors (not zen) do not support SMT actually?

graysky commented on 2016-08-16 23:48

Well, they are certainly in the sources:
% grep CONFIG_SMT config.x86_64

% grep CONFIG_SMT config

And in the [repo-ck] packages but I can't control what you do to the PKGBUILD on your own machine :p

% uname -r
% zgrep CONFIG_SMT /proc/config.gz

By the way, why would I need to set SMT on an AMD processor?
