I get similar crashes with other recent Linux guests that I've tried: CentOS, Alpine, Coreos, and Ubuntu. Linux guests with older kernels (4.4.0-135 or earlier) boot and run just fine as well as FreeBSD guests.

I've tried two CPUs (AMD Ryzen 1700 and 2700) on the same motherboard (ASUS PRIME B350 PLUS, latest BIOS) with the same results.

Is there a BIOS setting I can tweak to fix this? Are Linux guests working on Ryzen bhyve hosts?

Thanks!

Do Linux guests work on bhyve hosts running on Ryzen CPUs? I'm still trying to find a way to get this working without replacing my whole system.

I have a Ryze machine running 11.3-RELEASE, that is rock solid, but not doing bhyve yet. If I get time next week I will try for you.

$ dmesg | grep CPU
Code:
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Six-Core Processor             (3194.09-MHz K8-class CPU)
FreeBSD/SMP: Multiprocessor System Detected: 12 CPUs

Just shooting in the dark here (I have no idea what the problem could be) but is it possible they all have this in common?
Code:
[    0.127064] Spectre V2 : Spectre mitigation: LFENCE not serializing, switching to generic retpoline
I can imagine a VM trying to update the (virtual) CPU's microcode and failing, causing it to crash and burn.

Has there been any discovered fix or workaround for this? I just upgraded to 12.1 from 11.3 and I am experiencing the same thing with my bhyve Linux guests that boot using grub2-bhyve. I have two FreeBSD 11.3 guests that run just fine as well.
