I've accumulated several boot warnings and/or errors during boot. I'm
not sure which ones are innocuous, and which ones are a problem:
These, especially the bug one seem concerning from the associated
comment in the kernel source:
[Firmware Warn]: MTRR: CPU 0: SYSCFG[MtrrFixDramModEn] not cleared by
BIOS, clearing this bit
[Firmware Bug]: ACPI: BIOS _OSI(Linux) query ignored
I don't see any specific problems from this one, at least I don't
think I do. The only PCI related issue I'm currently aware of is my
docking station not working properly if I unplug it or plug it in
while the laptop is suspended. (eg, resume state is different than
PCI: Ignoring host bridge windows from ACPI; if necessary, use
"pci=use_crs" and report a bug
Odd...maybe just a chipset quirk?
HPET not enabled in BIOS. You might try hpet=force boot option
I'm not sure if these are enough to warn the user about. I imagine
some discussion went into the notice though.
pci 0000:01:00.0: disabling ASPM on pre-1.1 PCIe device. You can
enable it with 'pcie_aspm=force'
A quick search of these messages makes them seem pretty common. I'm
not sure what an HEST or ERST table is, but is the warning useful in
HEST: Table is not found!
ERST: Table is not found!
My understanding is that memory region issues are common, but don't
usually cause a problem and when they do, its useful to have the
message in the logs, so eh.
