Upon further debug, using the pmc_core driver to ignore LTR "6", or bit 6 of LTR_IGN, can allow the system can enter Pkg C8. If I'm not mistaken, according to CSpec bit 6 of LTR_IGN will ignore LTR_ME, which is in the MEI driver's domain. Reproduce by: Boot to text console with latest Intel Next kernel (2017-10-30 as of writing) Run turbostat See residency no deeper than Pkg C2 Expected: At idle, system shows nonzero Pkg C8 residency, or deeper. Actual: At idle, system only shows nonzero Pkg C2 residency. Two work-arounds: echo 6 > /sys/kernel/debug/pmc_core/ltr_ignore Run powertop --auto-tune Criteria for closure: Idle system can enter Pkg C8 (or deeper) without having to explicitly "ignore" LTR 6 or otherwise have to manually enable runtime power management for MEI device(s).
