    SubjectWARNING: MP table in the EBDA can be UNSAFE

    Hello,

    Our Linux, running on an IBM X-Series 445, says :
    (excerpt from dmesg) :

    Linux version 2.4.20 (root@stg-02.ntr.witbe.francetelecom.fr) (gcc version 2.96 20000731 (Red Hat Linux 7.1 2.96-98)) #12 SMP

    Is there any known solution to re-enable the CPU 1, CPU 2 and CPU 3 ?

    Is this an IBM bug ?

    Please reply privately, I'm not subscribed to linux-smp.

    Thanks in advance,
