Description Juan 2003-03-26 05:10:07 UTC
Description of problem:
Kernel 2.4.18-27.8.0 does not print L2 Cache size for the Celeron
processor at boot time. The L1 Cache appears fine. Applying Patch
patch-2.4.21-pre5 does not seems to identify the L2 cache either.

Or what is more likely to be: I am missing to configure something.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
intall/upgrate to kernel kernel 2.4.18-27.8.0 or patch-2.4.21-pre5 

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
CPU: L1 I cache: 0K, L1 D cache: 8K

Expected results:
CPU: L2 cache: 128K
