Details? Do you have URLs for bug reports, dmesg logs, etc?

Can you help me understand the sequence of events? If I understand
correctly, the desired sequence is:

- user kernel boots
- user kernel panics and kexecs to kdump kernel
- kdump kernel writes vmcore to network or disk
- kdump kernel reboots
- user kernel boots

But the problem is that as part of the kdump kernel reboot,

- kdump kernel disables bus mastering for a Root Port
- device below the Root Port attempts DMA
- Root Port receives DMA transaction, handles it as Unsupported
Request, sends UR Completion to device
- device signals uncorrectable error
- uncorrectable error causes a crash (Or a hang? You mention both
and I'm not sure which it is)

Is that right so far?

I'm clearly missing something because this will turn off bus mastering
in cases where we previously left it enabled.

I was assuming the crash was related to a device doing DMA when the
Root Port had bus mastering disabled. But that must be wrong.

I'd like to understand the crash/hang better because the quirk
especially is hard to connect to anything. If the crash is because of
an AER or other PCIe error, maybe another possibility is that we could
handle it better or disable signaling of it or something.
