This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed- xenial' to 'verification-done-xenial'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-xenial' to 'verification-failed- xenial'.
If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed.

This is a regression introduced by commit e0edc8c54646. This regression is fixed by mainline commit db5ff909798, which was added to mailine in v4.15-rc9. This commit has already been added to Bionic via upstream stable udpates. Xenial also needs this fix because it recieved the regression introducing commit e0edc8c54646 via the 4.4.48 stable updates(See bug lp1663657). == Fix == commit db5ff909798ef0099004ad50a0ff5fde92426fd1 Author: Xinyu Lin <xinyu0...@gmail.com> Date: Sun Dec 17 20:13:39 2017 +0800 libata: apply MAX_SEC_1024 to all LITEON EP1 series devices == Regression Potential == Low. This commit was also cc'd to upstream stable to fix a regression, so it received extra upstream review. == Test Case == A test kernel was built with this patch and tested by the original bug reporter. The bug reporter states the test kernel resolved the bug. == Original Bug Description == Some SSD drives made by LiteOn can crash the kernel due to bad drivers. A fix for this issue has been submitted upstream: https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/libata.git/commit/?h=for-4.15-fixes LITEON EP1 has the same timeout issues as CX1 series devices. Revert max_sectors to the value of 1024. 'e0edc8c54646 ("libata: apply MAX_SEC_1024 to all CX1-JB*-HP devices")' Signed-off-by: Xinyu Lin <xinyu0...@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <t...@kernel.org> Cc: sta...@vger.kernel.org At a high level the root cause of this problem is that the device only supports commands with a transfer size up to 512KB. This worked fine with older versions of Linux but newer versions are attempting commands with a transfer size of 1280KB which is problematic for this device (LITEON EP1-KB480) To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1743053/+subscriptions -- Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~kernel-packages Post to : email@example.com Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~kernel-packages More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
