Hi Greg,

1. There's this "mce: native_apic_write_dummy()" WARNING which causes governor failures on
some of systems.
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14521

Here's what I wrote in the last comment of the bug:

The following 2 commits from linux-2.6 fixes the issue on 2.6.31.11 on my
system. I think they should at least be sent to stable@kernel.org for 2.6.32.y
inclusion if they are the correct/complete fixes:

intel_thermal_supported()



2. Boot hangs on old AMD Athlon XP Processors (not 64, not X2) with CONFIG_X86_CPU_DEBUG enabled kernels:

Reverting the following commit fixes the problem:

Subject: [PATCH] x86: cpu_debug: Remove model information to reduce encoding-decoding

Remove model information, encoding/decoding and reduce bookkeeping.

This, besides removing a lot of code and cleaning up the code, also
enables these features on many more CPUs that were enumerated before.
