Bug Description

Hi guys,

I'm sorry I have no real information to add to this, but Serge encouraged me to file a bug to get you guys to help me to debug this, so blame him.

I've been running the bionic kernels on a thinkpad X1 carbon 3rd generation for several months, and experiencing 2x hard lockups per day. Nothing in /var/log/kern.log looks very obvious to me, and I'm not lucky enough to get a stack trace or anything.

Attached are the `ubuntu-bug linux` things that are uploaded automatically, but I'm happy to do whatever science experiments are necessary to get further info.

Here's /var/log/kern.log, just for grins.

FWIW, I verified that Tycho's microcode revision is what's expected for his CPU:

  142: sig 0x000306d4, pf mask 0xc0, 2018-01-18, rev 0x002a, size 18432

I don't think his lockups are due to running a previously published microcode revision that Intel pulled or any bad interactions with the 4.15 kernel.

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.
