kworker thread issue - interrupt timer

Postby chapeaurouge on Mon Jan 30, 2012 11:40 am

Hello

Got a linux mint 12 (32bitS) on a t61p intel core2duo, 6 gb ram, ssd. Issue arises with stock kernel and 3.2.0-12-generic-pae.

I got loads of timer interrupts, which even make my mouse moves not to be smooth anymore. sys cpu time up to 30-40%. Here is a snap of procinfo.

irq 0: 6669890 timer irq 21: 0 uhci_hcd:usb4
irq 1: 7678 i8042 irq 22: 114714 ehci_hcd:usb1

Reasearch led me to think that this is an autosuspend kworker thread.

I have tried to:
- disable USB in BIOS altogether -> still there?!?!
- for i in /sys/bus/usb/devices/*/power/autosuspend; do echo 0 > $i; done
- echo on into power/control to deactive autosuspend
- echo -1 /sys/module/usbcore/parameters/autosuspend

Nothing helps.

Any ideas?

Thanks, fred

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hi, I'm having this exactly same problem. I'm using Debian Edition and mouse keeps stopping from five to five seconds. And System monitor graphic shows a peak at the same time in one of the processors. How did you solve this problem?
Thanks,

Leonardo

Hi

I have the same problem in Mint 12 64bit (Lenovo T61). Switching from kernel 3.0.0-17-generic back to 3.0.0-12-generic fixes the problem for me.

I tried building kernel from 3.4-rc7 sources but that didn't solve the problem.
