Hi Paul,

Thanks for the report!

This is an Intel root port:

  00:1c.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation NM10/ICH7 Family PCI Express Port 1 (rev 02) (prog-if 00 [Normal decode])

and probably has the CF118 erratum (see
for details).  I bet if you changed "msecs" in pcie_wait_cmd() to 30000
you'd see a 30 second delay during shutdown because we write a command to
tell the port not to generate any more hotplug interrupts, and we wait for
that command to complete, but the port never tells us it has completed.

Lukas reported a similar issue in, which we sort
of worked around by assuming that Thunderbolt controllers never support
that "command complete" interrupt (see

Sinan mooted the idea of using a "no-wait" path of sending the "don't
generate hotplug interrupts" command.  I think we should work on this
idea a little more.  If we're shutting down the whole system, I can't
believe there's much value in *anything* we do in the pciehp_remove()

Maybe we should just get rid of pciehp_remove() (and probably
pcie_port_remove_service() and the other service driver remove methods)
completely.  That dates from when the service drivers could be modules that
could be potentially unloaded, but unloading them hasn't been possible for

As far as the resume path, my guess is that in pciehp_resume(), we
write a command to enable interrupts, then it looks like we get a
PCI_EXP_SLTSTA_DLLSC "Link Up" interrupt, and apparently we issue
another command.  Not sure exactly what's going on here.

Could you try the following patch?  The idea is to (1) do nothing on
shutdown, so you should see no message and no delay, and (2) collect
more information about the resume path.
