    Default Many many "mei_me reset: connect/disconnect timeout." kernel errors

    Hi,

    what's going on here. I have many many errors like shown below (the first errors I get at boot, slowing my boot for ~30s, and also afterwards the lines/errors are there in dmesg

    Code:
    # dmesg -xT -l err,crit,emerg
    kern  :err   : [Fr Mai 16 07:41:16 2014] dmar: IOMMU: failed to map dmar0

    Hi
    If your not using the management interface, then disable it in your
    system BIOS option. Else probably blacklist the offending module.

    What hardware are you using?

    What is a "management interface"!? So don't knowing what it is I think I don't use it, so search for "management interface" in the BIOS and disable it (or how is it called there)?

    I had the same problem. Plus I had nowhere in bios to turn it off and I'm not proficient enough to rebuild the kernel. I did, however this temp fix:
    in your /etc/modprobe.d/99-local.conf, add the following two lines:

    Code:
    blacklist mei_me
    blacklist mei
    I no longer get a bloated message.log. I'm on a rebuilt Lenovo ThinkCentre dual-core and openSUSE 13.1. Hope this helps you as well.

    Same here.... did blacklist the modules, the messages are gone now but the booting process stops at the same sequenz and is blocked about half a minute as before, I only don't get the mei_me messages anymore

    Code:
    # dmesg -xT -l err,crit,emerg
    kern  :err   : [Mo Mai 19 09:02:26 2014] dmar: IOMMU: failed to map dmar0
    kern  :err   : [Mo Mai 19 09:02:38 2014] kvm: disabled by bios
    kern  :err   : [Mo Mai 19 09:02:38 2014] kvm: disabled by bios

    Hmm, do you have a VT or VT -d setting in your bios. If so, disable it. Might be under the 'Advanced" tab. Not to be confused with "Intel Virtualization Technology" which should be enabled. That should get rid of the IOMMU error. If you are still getting the kvm errors, you might try adding to your blacklist file:

    Code:
    blacklist kvm
    blacklist kvm_intel
    blacklist kvm_amd
    If it ain't broke, I just haven't gotten to it yet.

    Yes, I have two entries with VT and they were disabled already
