Bad news, you have a `C204 Chipset LPC Controller` so you have ME hardware on board and you can't control or disable it, continuing...

Do you have kernel cmdline argument 'iomem=relaxed' set ?

Yes, I've set 'iomem=relaxed':

% cat /proc/cmdline
BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-4.9.0-8-amd64 root=UUID=<UUID> ro consoleblank=0 console=tty1 console=ttyS2,115200n8 forcefsck iomem=relaxed
