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 v4.16 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.

We can perform a kernel bisect to identify the commit that introduced this regression. We first need to identify the last kernel that did not have this bug and the first that did.

Can you next test the following kernels:

v4.14 Final:

You don't have to test all of them. Just until you hit the first version that exhibits the bug.
