Bug Description

I'm spammed by PCIe Bus Error. I get this error 10 times per second in console. Error is:
pcieport 0000:00:1c.0: PCIe Bus Error: severity=Corrected, type=Physical Layer, id=00e0(Receiver ID) device [8086:a112] error status/mask=00000001/00000000
pcieport 0000:00:1c.0: [ 0] Receiver Error (First)

I collected some sys info:
lspci -vt>lspci_vt.log
lspci -nnv>lspci_nnv.log
cat /proc/cpuinfo >proc_cpuinfo.log
uname -a>uname_a.log
lsusb -v>lsusb_v.log
lsb_release -a>lsb_release.log
iwconfig >iwconfig.log

I run latest Ubuntu 17.04 on VivoBook Pro N752VX notebook (

This pcieport 1c.0 is connected to RTL8192EE PCIe Wireless Network Adapter (see lspci_vt.log).

I can disable this message by adding pci=nomsi kernel parameter, but this is not a bug fix, only a workaround. Also after appling this parameter wifi connection is quite slow and unstable. On windows 10 I get approx ping time 3ms to my wifi router. On Linux ping time is min/avg/max 5.548/60.137/261.145 with very good signal strength (see iwconfig.log).

Did this issue start happening after an update/upgrade? Was there a prior kernel version where you were not having this particular problem?

Would it be possible for you to test the latest upstream kernel? Refer to . Please test the latest v4.12 kernel[0].

If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tag 'kernel-fixed-upstream'.

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the tag: 'kernel-bug-exists-upstream'.

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug as "Confirmed".

Thanks in advance.

Issue happened on newly installed ubuntu 17.04. Since installation my kernel was upgraded several times. Bug is present in all kernel versions.

It seems kernel-ppa was not built properly for ubuntu 17.04 zesty release:

E: The repository ' zesty Release' does not have a Release file.
