Description

I would like to report issues with USB3 external disk enclosures and coreboot on the Lenovo X230.

I have several enclosures, and only one works without issues: Toshiba Stor E Alu 2.5. Every other one will cause the following messages in dmesg over USB3 (USB2 is fine):

Note that it says it's a Toshiba enclosure but it's not the Stor E Alu 2.5, it's from an Orico 2588US3-V1-BK-PRO with a 2.5" Intel X25M SSD in it.

If I use Lenovo's BIOS, then I don't have any errors at all in dmesg, and I'm able to use the disk normally. With coreboot, I can't mount the disk at all and dmesg gets these error messages continuously.

Here is what happens with another enclosure from Amazon (Cateck brand) with a 120GB PNY SSD:

This one is able to mount the disk but doing so takes minutes, and reading or writing operations are also very slow to complete (even a simple ls or touch)

Finally, here are the inteltool dumps from running the Lenovo 2.68 bios and from running the coreboot built off the .config file attached to the ticket. Dumped with inteltool -a.
