Subject: [PATCH] pci: add NVMe FLR quirk to the SM951 SSD
Date: Thu, 29 Apr 2021 18:07:30 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The SM951/PM951, when used in conjunction with the vfio-pci driver and
passed to a KVM guest, can exhibit the fatal state addressed by the
existing `nvme_disable_and_flr` quirk. If the guest cleanly shuts down
the SSD, and vfio-pci attempts an FLR to the device while it is in this 
state, the nvme driver will fail when it attempts to bind to the device 
after the FLR due to the frozen config area, e.g:

  nvme nvme2: frozen state error detected, reset controller
  nvme nvme2: Removing after probe failure status: -12

By including this older model (Samsung 950 PRO) of the controller in the
existing quirk: the device is able to be cleanly reset after being used
by a KVM guest.
