Like markzz was, I'm providing updated builds in my (unofficial) user repository, if you don't want to build this yourself.

@giostark seems I have to dig deeper. After booting the default arch kernel, the problem continues to exist.

@PrfStrwberry- I have a 7700K and differ for two instruction from your: Intel® vPro™ Platform Eligibility and Intel® Trusted Execution Technology. And to me the mitigations seems to work. In general mitigation come activate host side but is not mandatory that the guest will use them. Those security mitigations are for you really necessary? Are you using those for networking VMs. Seems not bios options are available in Asus firmware. Kernel side I'm a noob so I can't say a thing. Thanks slowbro and markzz for your work. Me too I could not make my stuffs without this kernel.

Hey thanks for keeping this package up to date. I could not do anything without it. I am using an i7 8700k with an ASUS Maximus X CODE. I just have a small problem, after compiling and installing everything. When I create a VM inside virt-manager, I cannot enable and apply the box at enable cpu flaw mitigations. After clicking and applying, the tickbox goes blank again. Any tips?

ShayBox, it's unfortunately just the one little server on the west coast; it was probably busy with the binge watching I was doing on Plex last night. Should be okay now?

I'm going to set up my build system again and keep this package up to date as regards to this PKGBUILD to keep it up to date on my repository. The 5.5.13.arch1-1 is built and up on my repository.

markzz commented on 2020-03-28 04:41

This is my queue to actually use my work from home time and compile a new version of the package.

slowbro your repo is running at a few hundred kbps

Sorry for the update delay; I had made 5.5.10, but then forgot to push it. Then work-from-home happened and things have been cuh-ray-zee.

5.5.13 is up now. If anyone is using my repo, as an FYI, I have switched to zstd (.tar.zst).

I hope everyone is doing well.

Got 5.5.9 out; note that this kernel is compiled w/ gcc 9.3.0; you may need to pacman -Syu before building the new version (I'm not entirely sure since I did a roundabout way). Either way, the pre-compiled version is available on my repo.

And now my graphics card I've attached for use with VFIO isn't initializing correctly. Looking deeper it seems like this is a kernel issue, but I don't know the cause. Looking through dmesg, I get this: pci-stub 0000:07:00.0: Invalid PCI ROM header signature: expecting 0xaa55, got 0xffff and some message saying it couldn't turn on the device. Is anyone else having these problems? I'm building the LTS version of this kernel in the hopes it fixes my problems. I'll edit my post as I find more information.

EDIT: I should mention that it's not the card itself since I booted into Windows 10 briefly with it and it appears to work fine.
