For a long time I've wanted to get a motherboard that supports IOMMU to be able to try out giving a real graphics card to virtual machines with VGA passthrough. My new machine supports IOMMU (it's enabled in BIOS) and I've tried compiling kernel with AMD IOMMU support, however, for some reason my NIC doesn't work with this kernel option. NIC's kernel driver, igb emits following log entries:

Code:
igb 0000:06:00.0: Detected Tx Unit Hang


And it reports adapter resets:

Code:

I wonder if it's still possible to use both IOMMU driver and igb?

Regarding IOMMU, kernel prints following lines:

When you have problem with host device when activate iommu, I think you need iommu=pt to add to your kernel cmdline. I don't have AMD and/or same network device but have seen somewhere while researching on this iommu option.

The issue seems to be gone on it's own now. I don't know why. Might've been something I changed in BIOS (RAM timings?) or the kernel. But now my NIC appears to be working with IOMMU enabled.
