Intel IOMMU not working for Marvell SSD Controller

Hello everyone,
I already searched for my issue and I can't find any solution.

My problem is that as soon as I enable "intel_iommu=on" the system won't boot, because I'm getting DMAR errors:

dmar: DRHD: handling fault status reg 2
dmar: DMAR:[DMA Write] Request device [02:00.1] fault addr fffe0000
DMAR:[fault reason 02] Present bit in context entry is clear

(typed from a screenshot, because there are no other logs)

This repeats 7 times with alternating "...reg 2" and "...reg 3". After that I'm dropped to the recovery shell, because it can't find the root device (/dev/sdd2).

Relevant HW overview:
Intel i7-4970
ASRock Z97 Extreme 6
Plextor M6e 256GB (PX-G256M6E) (/dev/sdd)

This is the mainline kernel with acs and vga arbiter patches.
Othere related and tested patches were dma-alias and exclude devices using rmrr.

I tried the same setup on another drive and it boots up, though the same errors are displayed. The SSD remains unusable until I reboot without IOMMU.

I don't want to passthrough the device to any guest. So possible solutions are skipping the device for DMAR (if that is even possible) or somehow fix the mapping.
Please help me, I don't know what else I can do to fix this.

Re: Intel IOMMU not working for Marvell SSD Controller

i suggest you remove 'quiet'  from the grub commandline, you should get additional messages that way that may help to troubleshoot.

For clarity, why do you need to use intel_iommu=on as a boot parameter ?
Can you enable IOMMU through bios/uefi and does that make a difference ?


Edit

Linux appex 3.15.7-1-qemu #1 SMP PREEMPT Sat Aug 2 23:02:37 CEST 2014 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Are you booting into a qemu virtual machine ?
If so, what OS are you running on the host ?

Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.
Did you use the guided installer ? If yes, I can't help you.

Re: Intel IOMMU not working for Marvell SSD Controller

The quiet cmdline doesn't change much. Anyway, here is a picture of all output: Click
I have VT-d enabled in uefi and I need to set intel_iommu=on to actually use it, else it can't create the IOMMU groups (/sys/kernel/iommu_groups/) I need for passthrough of devices. Of course the system boots if I disable VT-d in uefi, because the kernel will ignore the related commands.

The kernel is running on the host machine, it is named that way so I know for what I'm using it. All I'm doing is pressing the power button: Power on --> POST --> GRUB --> "Loading initramfs" --> Error (see screenshot)

Edit: As indicated in my first post I already tested installing everything on another drive and it can successfully use passthrough. The same errors appear, but it will continue booting, because root wasn't on that drive while testing. The Plextor SSD remains unusable as long as IOMMU is activated. Of course installing on another drive is no solution for my problem, because I want to use that SSD in my setup.

Edit2: Here are the hooks:

HOOKS="base udev autodetect modconf block lvm2 filesystems keyboard fsck"

Edit3: Some more information (booted without any additional cmdline options).

udevadm info -q all -a /dev/sdd

Udevadm info starts with the device specified by the devpath and then
walks up the chain of parent devices. It prints for every device
found, all possible attributes in the udev rules key format.
A rule to match, can be composed by the attributes of the device
and the attributes from one single parent device.

Re: Intel IOMMU not working for Marvell SSD Controller

I've come to the decision that I will send the drive back. I found no solution after trying for half a week (before posting here). Also trying to write my own patches on top of other Marvell controller fixes didn't really help. I managed nothing more than accidentally accessing the drives own uefi loader in ro mode.

Sorry if anyone else is finding this thread in the future with a similar problem, but my only advice is stay away from Marvell RAID/SSD controllers at all cost if you ever plan to use IOMMU!

Re: Intel IOMMU not working for Marvell SSD Controller

Swiggles,
It's not a solution, but here's a little more information. I'm having the same problem, it seems the Marvell controllers embedded in the M6e boards aren't compatible with iommu. I'm using one as a cache SSD to speedup my system. I can still boot (off the slower hdd), but when I turn on iommu, the SSD disappears. Here's the kernel bug:

Sorry to resurrect an old post.
