Unfortunately my efforts were unsuccessful. I could also not get pass-through working with the stock kernel. I'll keep trying...

This package might be obsolete since 4.18.16: https://forum.level1techs.com/t/threadripper-reset-fixes/123937/98

Some users report pcie reset is working in the latest kernel, but others are saying it is still broken.

I was able to get a new package built with kernel 4.18.16, but some changes were needed with the patch. As I am not entirely familiar with how the patch works or kernel development in general, I want to smoke test this update before pushing it out.

When building it complains about unknown public key A5E9288C4FA415FA. How can I solve it?

Thanks for this package! I was able to use it to build the 4.18.8 kernel but I had to modify the patch to split the second hunk into two parts. Looks like some code got inserted in the pci.c file right in the middle of that hunk so it wasn't patching correctly. I'm sure that none of the line numbers match the way they should anymore, but the patch still applies. I also seem to be affected by the AGESA platform security processor bug so I was able to fix my ten minute shutdown times by setting the CONFIG_CRYPTO_DEV_SP_PSP module to n. System shuts down without any problems now and prevented some errors I was seeing during boot related to it. Been running the modified kernel for about a week now without any issues that I can detect.

Updated to 4.18 sorry for the delay, life has been hectic.

@yankeedoodle that patch is already included.This package is for the use case you mentioned. :)

demizer, thanks for putting this together. Do you think it is in scope for your package to add the PCI reset patch for us VFIO users who are running a bunch of VM's with passthru gpus? I could create yet another kernel package for TR+VFIO, but honestly this seems like the logical place for it. Cheers.

do you know when you have the time to update this to the latest kernel (4.17.3)?

demizer commented on 2018-03-24 06:32

Thanks @starkers, change has been added.

Nice, I'm compiling this now..

One suggestion whilst I wait which is I noticed the make bzImage modules was missing ${MAKEFLAGS}.

This lets users set flags like -j5 or whatever for some extra jobs in /etc/makepkg.conf
