|0005644||Kali Linux||[All Projects] Kali Package Bug||public||2019-08-20 13:45||2019-08-23 12:58|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||2019.3|
|Summary||0005644: Kernel 5.2.9-1kali1 config CONFIG_INTEL_IOMMU_DEFAULT_ON=y|
|Description||On some computer (e.g.: a Thinkpad T550 with HD Graphics 5500) the new kernel configuration 'CONFIG_INTEL_IOMMU_DEFAULT_ON=y' causes a boot loop:|

|Steps To Reproduce||Update to the latest kernel|
|Additional Information||The 5.2.5 Kali dev kernel was not affected.|
A workaround: add intel_iommu=off to /etc/default/grub:
That option has been enabled in response to this bug report:
I'm not sure that disabling it is better.
Do you happen to know if there's an upstream fix already? Or at least a corresponding bug report? Because reporting the bug to Kali will not help to get it fixed where it matters.
How did you find out the relationship between that option and the failure that you encountered?
I was not aware of the debian bug #934309.
The config change is on the Deban side, sorry.
For my T550 laptop it solved the issue.
I search about my 'DMAR: DRHD: handling fault' error and found that is related to intel iommu:
We have released an updated kernel that disables that option for now... but it's a short term fix. On the Debian side, they do not want to revert that setting apparently. They are looking for other quirks to fix it.
Apparently, the better work-around is to use "intel_iommu=igfx_off" on the kernel parameters at boot time. I'm not sure if that can be configured by default in the kernel.
Someone else reported a similar problem in Debian and upstream:
||Bug in Debian: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=935270|
Strange, still have the bug with 5.2.0-kali2-amd64.
I see the commit but CONFIG_INTEL_IOMMU_DEFAULT_ON is y again:
root@kali:~# grep -i 'intel_iommu_def' /boot/config-5.2.0-kali2-amd64
root@kali:~# uname -a
Linux kali 5.2.0-kali2-amd64 0000001 SMP Debian 5.2.9-1kali2 (2019-08-20) x86_64 GNU/Linux
Can you try with Debian's kernel linux-image-5.2.0-2-amd64 in version 5.2.9-2 which is in Debian unstable?
Does that kernel work for you?
@fl0 I also wanted to know if booting with "intel_iommu=igfx_off" was sufficient to fix your issue. Or do you really need "intel_iommu=off" ?
If you can reply quickly, it would be appreciated, as we want to fix that kernel issue for the 2019.3 release that we are currently working on. TIA.
||Note that the updated Debian kernel has intel_iommu enabled but with a new option where it disables iommu for the Intel GPU on the root bus only (see https://salsa.debian.org/kernel-team/linux/commit/154cf246f657fc7d077a9bc0aa31ca4d32cfdeaf).|
"intel_iommu=igfx_off" fix the issue.
But i have to add it manually to /boot/default/grub with 5.2.0-kali2-amd64.
||Ok, I've tried kernel linux-image-5.2.0-2-amd64 from Debian unstable: issue resolved, no need to manually edit /boot/default.grub.|
||/etc/default/grub not /boot/default.grub|
||The kernel 5.2.9-2kali1 now in kali-rolling should thus fix your issues.|
||Yes fixed !|
||Thanks for the confirmation, closing.|
