Description Jim Paradis 2006-02-10 14:53:37 EST
This is the RHEL4 version of Bug 171277:

In arch/x86-64/kernel/mce.c:

__setup("mce", mcheck_enable);

The comment above mcheck_enable reads:

/* mce=off disables machine check. Note you can reenable it later
   using sysfs */

The '=' passed to mcheck_enable is not taken into account, and parsing will fail
every time.

Trivial fix.

Comment 5 Mike Gahagan 2006-06-14 14:21:16 EDT
verified this is working on -39.EL. apperantly the only way to check is look for
the (non)existance of the bank* files in
