No, the CONFIG_DEFAULT_PASSTHROUGH option makes passthrough the default. If it's enabled you don't need to specify "iommu=pt" on the kernel command line.

Code:
Symbol: IOMMU_DEFAULT_PASSTHROUGH [=n]
Type  : bool
Prompt: IOMMU passthrough by default

the nomodeset option seems to have done the trick. thanks.
hopefully the 5.0 kernel will have that fixed so that the graphics will be enabled ok.

I'm still continuing to have hard locks on my system even though it's got all latest updates:

Ryzen 5 1500x
asus b450m-a prime with bios 0604 (14dec2018)
slackware -current with kernel 4.19.21
nvidia gt1030 with binary blob 415.13

The lockups happen every few days typically when the machine is not actively in use (eg. overnight); there is also no log information at all concerning the issue (including in messages, syslog or debug). I normally use a generic kernel with initrd but a few weeks ago, I did a -current update and restarted with std huge kernel and I'm almost sure that the machine ran for quite a long time without any problem ... I've retried using the huge kernel but after additional -current updates, the problem still seems to occur fairly regularly (every 2 to 4 days) whether huge or generic kernel.

Typical apps running:

X + latest AlienBob Plasma
firefox
tbird
chromium
qbittorrent
sickchill (python)
keepassxc
vbox 6.0.2

Any advice/comments is appreciated.

I was experiencing random system lockups while using the Nvidia-418.30-Beta driver and the 4.19.21 kernel. On a hunch I went back to the 410.93 "long lived branch" driver and haven't had a lock up since with the 4.19.21 or 4.19.23 kernels.
Don't know if that will help in your situation.

I'm getting similar lockups every 2-4 days. This is with a Ryzen 7 1700x on an MSI board. Thought I was crazy, so I'm glad I'm not the only one having that problem...
nvidia 418.43 is out with some really odd fixes in the changelog, so I'm going to push forward!

As a side note, my laptop with a 2700U (Raven Ridge) has been up for 22 days. No lockups there.

Thanks @cwizardone - upgraded to nvidia 418.30 and things seemed to have stabilized. No hangs/lockups for the last week.

Ryzen 2700 here, non x. Used to have instability but it was a problem on my part. I used to run my FOUR sticks of ram at 2933 hz and no matter which voltages, from undervolt to almost dangerously crispy, I would get the same failures, usually gcc segfaulting during compilations.

Then I ran only two sticks, and everything was fine. Now I'm running four on 2666 hz and everything is gucci. Guess Ryzen really DOES not like four sticks at overclock speeds due to its internal memory controller.

Anyway, now I'm running the 2700 at 4ghz 24/7 with a CPU voltage of 1.2v, ram at 1.35v, SoC 0.975v and it is rock solid now. I did get a lockup the other day but that was because after lowering the ram frequency it was so stable that I went to 1.1875v for the cpu voltage which was fine for everything, except compiling the latest version of blender, where I got a lockup.

Bottom line: Now that everything is sorted out, I couldn't be happier. Performance is equal/better to the 2700x and I still get to use my somewhat el cheapo 32gig ram instead of only 16.

I got an Raven Ridge laptop Acer A315-41-R6VQ with 2500u and i tried it with liveslack and it freezes on me but the touchpad still works.
Anyone got any tips what boot parameters and settings should i try for RR hardware?
I haven't used it much yet but i still encountered problems with it.

I third the advice of Didier Spaier and Alien Bob.
What did you need to do for it to boot and not to hang?
Do you use any boot parameters? If so what are the ones you use?
I'm trying out an 2500u laptop with liveslack and it hangs sometimes and i currently use pci=noacpi for it to boot.

My laptop had a new bios update as well.
Updated the bios that was 3.8MB bigger and included "AMD SMU 30.80", "PI to v1.0.0.4".
After the update the option to change touchpad from advanced to basic was gone so now my touchpad doesn't work anymore, need to find out how to get the touchpad to work with advanced i2c mode in liveslack.

I have this same laptop and boot with ivrs_ioapic[4]=00:14.0 and ivrs_ioapic[5]=00:00.2 instead of pci=noacpi, makes it run a lot better. It still hangs occasionally while unlocking LUKS volumes and makes me reboot, but I'm not sure if that's related or not. Seems to be kinda a crappy firmware...

As for the touchpad, mine seems to work on either setting

So what's the conclusion here? Safe now to use a Ryzen?
