Description Paul Whalen 2018-04-30 16:07:02 UTC
Description of problem:
When booting the F28 AArch64 disk images on the Raspberry Pi 3 B+, in U-Boot there are repeated messages:

Rx: failed to receive: -5

Eventually the kernel boots to log in.

Comment 1 Tom Lane 2018-05-06 04:36:01 UTC
I'm also seeing this on a 3B+.  It seems to interact somehow with the too-many-USB-devices bug: if I have enough stuff connected to trigger "Timeout poll on interrupt endpoint" then I don't see it.

Comment 2 Joseph Callen 2018-05-10 17:08:12 UTC
Me too.  Unfortunately my rpi3b+ was unable to get past the "Rx: failed to receive: -5"

I had to use an external usb ethernet device and just wait for lan78xx_eth timeout.


Comment 3 Tom Lane 2018-05-26 22:29:47 UTC
Additional datum: if there's no ethernet cable connected, I see a timeout almost immediately and no "Rx: failed to receive: -5" messages.  So if you're using an external USB network dongle anyway, this is basically not a problem, just don't connect a cable to the built-in ethernet.

Still, it'd be nice not to have to use the extra hardware.

BTW, the "Timeout poll" message I mentioned in comment #1 now seems like it's possibly an incompatibility with the ancient Apple USB keyboard I'm using.  It's now fairly clear that it has nothing to do with the number of USB devices plugged in, as I first thought.  I can get around it by not plugging in the keyboard till after U-Boot advances past its initial wait-2-seconds timeout.
