SubjectRE: [PATCH V3 1/1] nvme: Add quirk for LiteON CL1 devices running FW 220TQ,22001
Rephrased the problem description here,
When host issue shutdown + D3hot in suspend, NVMe drive might have chance choosing wrong pointer which has already been used by GC then cause over program.
Do GC before shutdown -> delete IO Q -> shutdown from host -> breakup GC -> D3hot -> enter PS4 -> have a chance swap block -> use wrong pointer on device SRAM -> over program
The issue only happens in simple suspend (shutdown+D3hot) with specific FW on Kahoku board.

Any progress in describing the problem a little better?
