My system doesn't follow the reproduction pattern. What I usually do to
reproduce it is, making a host reset and followed by making a BMC reset
then host will try to send something through KCS channel and snoop-80
while BMC LPC drivers are being loaded. It's not easy to reproduce it
using my system and it's very timing sensitive.

As I suggested in previous email, disable all LPC sub functions and
enable back one by one. It could help for identifying which LPC sub
module causes the issue.
