kernel error in drm_kms_helper, flip_done timed out

Since update to 4.8.2 I've got the following log entry, after 10s delay during booting:

[   12.000117] [drm:drm_atomic_helper_commit_cleanup_done [drm_kms_helper]] *ERROR* [CRTC:26:pipe A] flip_done timed out

dmesg:
https://gist.github.com/b11feee43a5625f … d9634684ad

hwinfo:
https://gist.github.com/7574618148c1688 … 0bf831fec0

Afer some googling I found someone mentioning a bug in drm-misc, which should be resolved now:

The bugfix for that is in latest drm-misc (or well, should be at
least). And you need to make sure to call drm_crtc_send_vblank_event
(if there's an event) from your update hook. That /should/ work, but I
didn't test it myself. flip_done not happening is when the
driver/helpers fail to submit the event for some reason or another.
-Daniel

No change after Update to 4.8.6.

Edit: Bug reported  FS#51703

Re: kernel error in drm_kms_helper, flip_done timed out

Same issue here, even on latest 4.8.3-1-ARCH.
Sometimes the system doesn't boot at all and gets stuck in the early-userspace.
Sometimes it boots but then it freezes after 5 minutes within Xorg.

A solution might be to revert commit 784d5699eddc (which seems being in three since jan) or wait for a fix, but I'm not quite familiar with git so I downgraded to 4.7.6 kernel for now.
Maybe the issue gets triggered because of using a rather new toolchain but I'm not so sure.

Same here.
Downgrading solved this issue for now.
Will wait for a fix before upgrading my system again.

Re: kernel error in drm_kms_helper, flip_done timed out

Same problem with my laptop (Compaq 6510b).
I've also noticed, that it somehow breaks Okular - when I try to open a .pdf file then the computer freezes.

At the moment I've downgraded to 4.7.6.

Same problem with Linux arch 4.8.6-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Oct 31 18:51:30 CET 2016 x86_64 GNU/Linux.

The "problem" is message error and 20 sec more to boot. All system works properly.

Meanwhile waiting for a fix bootingm I run LINUX-LTS 4.4.28-1 thats boots ok.

I've tested 4.8.7 - "flip_done timed out" error is still there.

linux-lts works fine for the moment, if it's feasible for you.

Re: kernel error in drm_kms_helper, flip_done timed out

I have this problem, as well.

...on my old Dell D630, but not my kid's Lenovo Ideapad 100.


(The LTS kernel works well, but it seems like a tourniquet, and I prefer my edge to bleed.)


***UPDATE

GM965 here, as well.

Re: kernel error in drm_kms_helper, flip_done timed out

I just upgraded to 4.8.8-1 and so far nothing which had been causing the "drm_kms, flip..." message is causing a problem.  For me, this included simply moving from X to a framebuffer vt.  Fingers crossed, but it looks fixed on my system (Toshiba L755 laptop.)

*** Update ***

I spoke too soon.  After roughly an hour of operation, the problem reappeared.  Downgraded to 4.7.6-1 again.

Re: kernel error in drm_kms_helper, flip_done timed out

Has anyone checked if it is fixed in 4.9-rc5?
Also as it seems this is an upstream issue has anyone reported it upstream?

Re: kernel error in drm_kms_helper, flip_done timed out

Does anyone here with this problem not have "Intel X3100" graphics? (965GM chipset)

I don't have time at the moment but I intend to look at this in the next couple of months. It probably needs to be bisected - there is a wiki page describing how to do this, if anyone is up for it.

Re: kernel error in drm_kms_helper, flip_done timed out

It's a bug related to the video driver for sure, particularly to intel kernel DRM.
I have 965GM chipset/i915 DRM driver.
I truthfully hope this bug gets squashed with 4.9.
Has anyone tried 4.8.8-2 yet?

Well unless someone affected by the issue is prepared to build a 4.9 kernel will have to wait for 4.9 to enter testing or 4.9.1 to enter stable.

The diff from 4.8.8-1 to 4.8.8-2 addresses "fix #51818 lvm2 breakage, move to mkinitcpio running as pacman hook" no upstream changes so should not be relevant to this issue.

Re: kernel error in drm_kms_helper, flip_done timed out

I don't use Arch but I have the same bug on Fedora with the 4.8 Kernel, also with a GM965 chipset.
There is already a report upstream here: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=96781

The bad commit has been bisected but so far none of the developers responded. I tried the drm-nightly kernel a couple days ago and the bug was still present so my fear is this won't be resolved any time soon.

There is another report which might be related but I'm not quite sure: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=97529

Still present in 4.8.10. It seems better to stick to linux-lts (4.4.35-1)

With which kernel? The previous post suggest that using the LTS one "solves" the issue.

Re: kernel error in drm_kms_helper, flip_done timed out

Running 4.8.13-1 now, and the error message still displays at boot, but it seems to get past it with no problems (that I have noticed so far).

I still have linux-lts installed as a back-up just in case, though, but I am running the Cinnamon desktop on the new kernel as I type this, and everything appears to be running smoothly.


BUT...

This is only my third month in the Linux world, so I do wonder if ignoring this may damage my hardware...

Any advice?

I can post whatever is needed to provide my system's information.

For instance:

I see numerous instances of this error in my dmesg. Here's the first:
