xfce4-power-manager is installed on Whonix-Host in 184.108.40.206.2-developers-only.
Fixed in 220.127.116.11.2-developers-only.
Setting quiet loglevel=0 in that exact order as per https://github.com/Whonix/security-misc/commit/6485df8126b52a2072824fa442e8d1dd5cb18981 does now hide [sda] Incomplete mode parameter data. However, messages by LKRG are not yet hidden.
Great news! I am rebuilding the whole package Host+gw+ws now, excited to test it out! Will report asap.
echo "options overlay metacopy=on" > /etc/modprobe.d/overlay.conf update-initramfs -u

That would be OK but this is not my preferred solution. Reason: an unclean shutdown in Whonix installed persistent mode would with a subsequent boot into live mode would result in a failed reboot into Whonix installed live mode.
Awesome analysis and description!
Likely fixed in next build already. Updated, relevant code is here:
Not 100% sure it would also be fixed inside VMs.
Excellent work. Thanks for researching this!
Some progress made as of Whonix-Host 18.104.22.168.7:
As of Whonix-Host 22.214.171.124.7 each environment (Host, gw, ws) has its own background color.
Should we close this ticket?
Do we need more tests or can we close this ticket?
Also, just tried it on Whonix-Host 126.96.36.199.7. It works.

Something like that. Maybe covering all of /etc/sysctl.conf and
/etc/sysctl.d folder to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX expansion.
We shouldn't stop using /etc/sysctl.d for compatibility. I think the best way would be to create /etc/default/grub.d/40_sysctl.cfg with:
Even kernel parameter quiet loglevel=3 rd.systemd.show_status=auto rd.udev.log_priority=3
does not hide [sda] Incomplete mode parameter data.
I can't work on this. Please go for T977.
T977 more important for now.
kernel.printk = 3 3 3 3
And of course these messages are attributed to whatever Whonix issue someone is having.

All tests done in KVM with 4 logical host CPUs, but I would expect to have similar (if not better) results on real hardware.

marmarek (Marek Marczykowski-Górecki):
Have you checked how it behaves with multiple Whonix Gateways?

But we couldn't just set that IP inside sys-whonix without touching dom0?
qvm-prefs sys-whonix ip 10.152.152.10 works great so far. Will test more. And call for testers.
qvm-prefs -D sys-whonix ip
How can I undo qvm-prefs sys-whonix ip 10.152.152.10 back to default?

 There is currently no trigger (systemd unit file) to execute /usr/lib/whonix-libvirt/persistent-mode-to-read-write.

That looks much better!

As of 184.108.40.206.7, the following behavior is observed:

These tests are fully independent.
another way, with the main menu stuff horizontal
Ok, so you want me to:
- boot a Whonix-Host ISO
- Install on HDD
- Reboot on Whonix-Host ISO, do some stuff, shutdown
- See if HDD has been modified (why would it be?)
