I confess I always am root on my dev machines :(

Hmm... on one machine (HP BL460c G1 ) I do have :

[ 0.015998] Performance Events: PEBS fmt0+, Core2 events, Broken BIOS detected, using software events only.
[ 0.015998] [Firmware Bug]: the BIOS has corrupted hw-PMU resources (MSR 186 is 43003c)


and the other one (HB BL460c G6)

[ 0.122760] Performance Events: PEBS fmt1+, Nehalem events, Broken BIOS detected, using software events only.
[ 0.123047] [Firmware Bug]: the BIOS has corrupted hw-PMU resources (MSR 38d is 330)


Hmm.. I have latest HP BIOS.

Version: I15
Release Date: 10/25/2010

and

Version: I24
Release Date: 09/02/2010

I am pretty sure I used "-e ..." some time ago with same BIOS.
