Since ~ 2020-02-01 2 DMAR messages appear every time when booting:
DMAR: DRHD: handling default status reg 3
DMAR: [DMA Write] Request device  [00:02.0] PASID ffffffff fault addr ffffed000 [fault reason 05] PTE Write access  is not set
I can find these 2 messages also using '~$ journalctl -xb'.

I believe I have not done anything that provoked these 2 messages except dist-upgrade.
Do I need to care about them?
I do not use explicitely virtualization let alone virtualization with DMAR.

The first 4 search results I get for this all recommend setting 'intel_iommu=off' as kernel parameter. But that was told you in IRC already yesterday - did it not help?
Du lachst? Wieso lachst du? Das ist doch oft so, Leute lachen erst und dann sind sie tot.

Inserting your suggested kernel parameter makes the two messages disappear.

I'd expected this result.
But my question was if I need to care if the two messages appear (in case of not adding an additional kernel parameter).
