Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 171277
MCE arg parsing broken on x86-64
Last modified: 2013-08-05 21:16:23 EDT
And the comment for mcheck_enable says:
/* mce=off disable machine check
mce=nok8 disable k8 specific features
mce=disable<NUMBER> disable bank NUMBER
mce=enable<NUMBER> enable bank number
mce=NUMBER mcheck timer interval number seconds.
Can be also comma separated in a single mce= */
But the '=' passed to mcheck_enable is not taken into account, and parsing will
fail every time.
Trivial patch attached.

This bug, as reported, is actually against RHEL3, not RHEL4 (the patch supplied
is a 2.4 patch, and bluesmoke.c is only seen in RHEL3). The same problem occurs
in RHEL4, though. I'll file a separate bug for that.
A fix for this problem has just been committed to the RHEL3 U8
patch pool this evening (in kernel version 2.4.21-40.2.EL).
Adding a couple dozen bugs to CanFix list so I can complete the stupid advisory.
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information

if the solution does not work for you.
