Subject: [REGRESSION] r8169: RTL8168h "transmit queue 0 timed out" after ASPM L1 enablement
Date: Wed,  8 Jun 2022 00:44:15 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

#regzbot introduced: 4b5f82f6aaef3fa95cce52deb8510f55ddda6a71


since the last major kernel version upgrade to 5.18 on Arch Linux I'm 
unable to get a usable ethernet connection on my desktop PC.

I can see a timeout in the logs

 > kernel: NETDEV WATCHDOG: enp37s0 (r8169): transmit queue 0 timed out

and regular very likely related errors after

 > kernel: r8169 0000:25:00.0 enp37s0: rtl_rxtx_empty_cond == 0 (loop: 
42, delay: 100).

The link does manage to go up at nominal full 1Gbps speed, but there is 
no usable connection to speak of and pings are very bursty and take 
multiple seconds.

I was able to pinpoint that the problems were introduced in commit 
4b5f82f6aaef3fa95cce52deb8510f55ddda6a71 with the enablement of ASPM 
L1/L1.1 for ">= RTL_GIGA_MAC_VER_45", which my chip falls under. Adding 
pcie_aspm=off the kernel command line or changing that check to ">= 
RTL_GIGA_MAC_VER_60" for testing purposes and recompiling the kernel 
fixes my problems.

I'm using a MSI B450I GAMING PLUS AC motherboard with a RTL8168h chip as 
per dmesg:

 > r8169 0000:25:00.0 eth0: RTL8168h/8111h, 30:9c:23:de:97:a9, XID 541, 
IRQ 101

helps already.
