(This bug is reported by Hitachi)
Since the kernel is lack of EFI modules,programs sometimes is stopped.
In detail,in the computing program,when exception error is occured,program
--CPU SPEC 2000 error is occured.
When FPSWA is not included in kernel,this will be occured.Since
BigSur(2way) firmware has FPSWA,
this is not occured on BigSur(2way),however,in CF-1(8way),since FPSWA is
not included,this error will
be occured on CF-1(8way).
Since FPSWA is often updated,it is better for OS to support the latest
version.Hitachi wish that
Red Hat will inculde the latest version of FPSWA.
please inculde latest fpswa.efi in \EFI\Intel Firmware\fpswa.efi
Futher information about FPSWA:
Bill: does this make any sense?
I suppose. I really have no idea if we can ship FPSWA ourselves, though.
I am sorry I did not express the issues clearly.
I think this is an issue that who will provide FPSWA,Firmware or Red Hat(OS
Or it is up to users?If we have such a policy that we have no plan to provide
I will tell Hitachi about this.
Bill, possibly you can follow up on this issue with Dell and Intel?
The resolution is that we are *not* shipping FPSWA; if a user needs it, they
can get it from Intel.
