Re: Call for report - G5/PPC970 status

PowerMac 7,3 G5 2.5 DP PCI-X Mid-2004 is affected with this bug. The machine freezes at boot due to the new ppc64 kernel.

The PowerMac system we have internally was not able to recreate this.

To narrow down the issue - is that a PCI/PCI-X (7,3 [1]) or PCIe G5 (11,2 [1]) ?
Single, dual or quad ?

Same question to anyone else with a G5 / PPC970 - what is it and does
it boot recent PPC64 Linux kernel ?

Christian from the original report has a quad, like me (so powermac11,2).

There was also a report of a powermac7.3 working in the original discussion,
single or dual unspecified.

So this might be a Quad thing, or a more general 11,2 thing...

At this point, I am not sure what would cause the Machine check with
that patch series because we have not changed the VA bits in that patch.

Any test I could run that would help you tracking the bug ?
