Bug Description

Early ThunderX silicon may hang when initializing the SATA controller.

[Test Case]
This was found in a reboot loop.

The latest ThunderX2 firmware (3.1) enables hardware error interrupts and
when the reset fix fails, we get a hang with the print:
[ 14.839308] sd 1:0:0:0: [sdb] 468862128 512-byte logical blocks: (240 GB/224 GiB)
[ 14.846796] sd 1:0:0:0: [sdb] 4096-byte physical blocks
[ 14.852036] sd 1:0:0:0: [sdb] Write Protect is off
[ 14.856843] sd 1:0:0:0: [sdb] Write cache: enabled, read cache: enabled, doesn't support DPO or FUA
[ 14.866022] ata2.00: Enabling discard_zeroes_data

        *** NBU BAR Error 0x1e25c ***
         AddrLo 0x1d80180 AddrHi 0x0

[Regression Risk]
The fix is only compiled in on arm64, and only activated at runtime on this specific revision of silicon, so regression risk will be limited to a single platform that is only being distributed for development purposes.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-artful' to 'verification-done-artful'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-artful' to 'verification-failed-artful'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
