[6.311772] ACPI: I/O resource piix4_smbus [0b00-0xb07] conflicts with region SOR1 [0xb00-0xb0f] on KUBUNTU Karmic boot

Bug Description

On boot I get the message in the title just after GRUB and before the KDM login. I am on KUBUNTU Karmic 9.10 AMD64.

Mobo is an ASUS M3A78-T with an AMD Phenom II quad
core cpu and 4 gig of ram.

Everything else should be attached by apport.

I have no FDD attached to this computer. 1 IDE HDD and a DVD writer on
the IDE cable and a SATA drive. I deeply suspect this is related to the
DVD drive.

Let me know if there's any further info I can provide to help.

Corfirming I get exactly the same kernel message right after grub2.
Ubuntu Karmic 64-bit (fully updated clean install).

@Shaved Wookie : Can you please attach the output of the following command as well:
sudo acpidump -o acpidump.txt
Thanks a lot !

When I do that command, the console also outputs:
Wrong checksum for OEMB

I get this and also a bunch of other messages, shown in the screenshot in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/445966.

Harry (harry33) wrote :

OK now these kernel messages have been masket by elevating the trigger to the level 2 (only emergency messages will appear).
This does not, however, mean that the original cause for the messages are fixed now.

Harry (harry33) wrote :

Actually this is already fixed in linux kernel.
This address space collision is only a message.
You see, kernel finds that BIOS AML is accessing the same resources
and thus automatically disallowing the driver (i2c_piix4) to load.

Of cource if you blacklist this driver, kernel will not find space collision and thus the message is not shown during boot.
But the result is the same: the driver i2c_piix4 is not loaded anyway.

For what its worth, I get this same message on ASUS M4A78T-E mobo w/AMD 810 CPU.

Thanks for the kernel research report Harry.

Same message for me with new install of 9.10 on ASUS M4A78LT-M LE.
This has AMD 760G chipset.
Tried sudo acpidump but got command not found.

FYI This install is not finished yet. I also have Question #98093 ( network DISABLED)

My board is a Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD5P with an AMD Phenom II 955BE

Confirming, i try to blacklist the driver descibed in #7

Aside from any more obvious lmsensors breakage, the inability to load piix4_smbus blocks the ability to use `decode-dimms` from i2ctools on these AMD systems, which is annoying.

Having the same error not sure if it is related to an issue I am having since an update as of May 16 of 9.10 that caused my box to become unresponsive after went into sleep. Decided to upgrade 10.04 fresh format/install and having the same issues after it goes to sleep stays unresponsive to network / keyboard access. Using an Asus M3A78-EM mobo Amd AthlonX2 5200+ CPU 2GB RAM, ATI HD3200 Integrated graphics with flgrx proprietary latest drivers as of this posting. Aside from that I have 1 320GB WD HDD Sata + 1 DVDRW Sata drive and a pci WIFI adapter. All were working well up to last week so I'm guessing something pushed recently may be the issue. Any help is appreciated.
