Re: FYI - Linux May Not Support Thunderbolt Native Mode

For those who would like a quick and easy way to determine if this bug is causing their problems: reboot the laptop (do not shut it down, just restart). If the heavy CPU usage and high temperatures disappear, and do not come back until the next time you either suspend, hibernate, or shut down, then this bug is likely the cause.

 

If that does not resolve the problem, there is still a chance that the operating system is triggering a "wake" event (and hence this bug) when it is being asked to reboot. However it is more likely that your issue has a different cause.

How to apply your patch? Can give some guidance?

It is Lenovo's responsibility to fix this bug, test it, and release the update. We should not be loading custom ACPI tables to work around it.

While waiting for that can you share your method?

Re: FYI - Linux May Not Support Thunderbolt Native Mode

You are free to look up such information for your operating system, but it would be at your own risk.

 

A simple reboot is a much safer way to diagnose whether this bug is causing the problem (and alleviate it).

I understand that you want to fix it as fast as possible, but the best way to do that is by getting Lenovo's attention.


It’s definitely thunderbolt issue, i have no issue with usb c dock or on direct power.

Re: FYI - Linux May Not Support Thunderbolt Native Mode

I'm worried about my longevity too. Even though it's already been a month since I had my product, I decided to still use my old laptop as my primary until these heating/cpu problems/fixes are addressed.

Since your reply was in response to my old thread (and the old and new threads have now been merged), I would just like to make sure that my patches from the new thread (patch1 patch2 patch3) were passed along to engineering as well. Thanks again!
