This should at least make vendors less nervous about Linux's APST
policy.  I'm not aware of any concrete bugs it would fix (although I
was hoping it would fix the Samsung/Dell quirk).

They have known firmware bugs.  A fix is apparently in the works --
once fixed firmware is available, someone from Intel (Hi, Keith!)
can adjust the quirk accordingly.

Just following a somewhat odd and arbitray policy from another driver
that doesn't fix anything by itself certainly isn't stable material.

And to be honest I'm not sure what applying it will gain us at all.

Fair enough.  The Cc: stable should certainly be dropped.

I'd be fine with skipping this patch entirely at least until we find
some evidence that it solves a problem instead.

It's certainly worth waiting for confirmation that it actually changes
anything, but I did want to pipe up to say that "following a somewhat
odd and arbitrary policy from another driver" is not wrong per se.

In fact, on the power management we pretty much had to do that, simply
because that "odd and arbitrary policy" (Windows behavior) was the
only thing that had ever been tested by anybody. Same goes for a lot
of PCI subsystem behavior etc.

So it's not wrong per se to just emulate others' behaviors. But yes,
we should have some reason for doing so, not just doing so blindly.

Here's the latest firmware with all the known fixes:

  https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26491?v=t

I am not 100% sure if this fixes the issue you're quirking, but I think
it falls under the issues the link initialization and ASPM comments in
the release notes.

Can you or someone at Intel supply a reliable way to distinguish a
fixed firmware from an unfixed firmware?  We have access to the "fr"
string, but I don't know what to do with it.

FWIW, on a system with a 600P on the old firmware (109C) running 4.11.3,
I went out to lunch and returned to find my system came down with a
message something like

> controller is down; will reset: CSTS=<???>, PCI_STATUS=0xffff

I updated to the new firmware (121C) and saw it again a few hours later
on the same 4.11.3 kernel. So I think it's prudent to quirk regardless
of firmware revision.
