Description of problem:
Getting this message on the console of an HP machine (DL380G2) - is this
something to be concerned about?
I was told that there was a fix for this at some point (not informed via
bugzilla, but by our technical rep at Red Hat), but it seems to have resurfaced
or not been corrected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install any of the Taroon builds on this HP server
2. see error on console when sysinfo (www.magnicomp.com) is run
See bug #97000, and bug #102973

A fix for this problem has just been committed to the RHEL3 U8
patch pool this evening (in kernel version 2.4.21-40.6.EL).
