"nvme error-log" shows incorrect value in "status_field"

This document (000020679) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP3


On a system with NVMe drives 'nvme error-log /dev/nvmeXnY' prints the error log entries.
Each entry has a "status_field" and the output does not match the NVMe specs, for example:

# nvme error-log /dev/nvme4n1
status_field    : 0xc00c(INTERNAL: The command was not completed successfully due to an internal error)

The expected result for the device would be:

# nvme error-log /dev/nvme4n1
status_field    : 0x6006(INTERNAL: The command was not completed successfully due to an internal error)


This is tentatively scheduled to be fixed in an upcoming maintenance update.
Customers affected by this issue can alternatively contact SUSE Technical Support to request a PTF (temporary fix).



The phase tag bit was erroneously included in the status_field value.
