linux-4.1.2-2 i686 "Failed to find cpu0 device node" boot msg

Since the Linux kernel 4.1.2 upgrade, this message appears on boot:

[    0.791819] Failed to find cpu0 device node
[    0.792059] Unable to detect cache hierarcy from DT for CPU 0

Pastebins: dmesg, journalctl -k

CPU: Intel Core2 Duo E6420 (intel-ucode is keeping microcode updated)

Something similar reported here: https://bbs.archlinuxcn.org/viewtopic.php?id=3429

Everything seems to be working just fine. Is it safe to ignore?

Re: linux-4.1.2-2 i686 "Failed to find cpu0 device node" boot msg

Same thing here. Those two lines while using the new 4.1.2-2 kernel package, specifically.

Jul 19 11:52:09 lappy kernel: Failed to find cpu0 device node
Jul 19 11:52:09 lappy kernel: Unable to detect cache hierarcy from DT for CPU 0

Not sure what to make of it, since I could find only a handful of references to this error in relation to people who are using the new kernel (like here on the manjaro forums).

Maybe this is something unique to Arch or Arch-based distros, then? Perhaps using the LTS kernel package (3.14.48-1) is good general advice until this problem is further explored, because those errors did not happen when I booted with the LTS kernel.

Not only do I have the same, but my laptop (Thinkpad X60s) also freezes after an hour or so.  I submitted a bug report to bugzilla.kernel.org last week: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=101621

I'm running my PC for hours every day and I did not experienced any kind of freezing. Also about that bugzilla report, I don't think these messages has anything to do with Intel graphics (I don't have one). Maybe you have an another issue that is unrelated to this.

You may be right.  As I said in my bug report, I'm not entirely sure this bug is graphics related.  At least it is specific to the thinkpad X60.  I just added to my report a snapshot of the messages I get when the kernel crashes at shutdown, which happens every time.  This is a regression since it did not happen with kernels older than 4.1.1.

Re: linux-4.1.2-2 i686 "Failed to find cpu0 device node" boot msg

This is definitely an upstream problem specific to the 4.1.x kernel.  I would recommend reverting to 4.0.x.  If you use git the 4.2.0 rc{1,2,3} does not have this problem.

I would not ignore the message as I regard anything red in my journal as a Bad Thing.
However I also am unable to detect any degradation in performance, cpu0 is alive and kicking.

It may be like the cgroup mismatch error at shutdown, probably of no concern, but i still use the shutdown hook to make it go away.

Reverting to your previous kernel is your best bet, LTS is a fine choice, git is a fun and unstable choice, ignoring it is probably not prudent.

I still have the problem with 4.1.4 and even with 4.2-rc5 (i686). Altough I just installed x86_64 Arch which is not showing this message for me. Maybe it is only afflicting i686? Anyone having this with x86_64?

Re: linux-4.1.2-2 i686 "Failed to find cpu0 device node" boot msg

Such message is related to DT (Open Firmware Device Tree), and is enabled only on x86, there is no such thing on x86_64. Of course such option does not make sense if your hardware is not an embedded device.

Re: linux-4.1.2-2 i686 "Failed to find cpu0 device node" boot msg

I marked it because I thought that if it is related to the OF DT and is true that it has nothing to do with non-embedded devices, than you can just ignore the message. I guess it is not the preferred way to handle these errors (and I agree, idk why I marked it), so I removed the solved mark.

https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kerne … acheinfo.c
This source file is the one that responsible for printing these errors. There are commits around 4.1RC that makes changes to this file (around these warning messages) and others. Someone should look into it / report it upstream.

Re: linux-4.1.2-2 i686 "Failed to find cpu0 device node" boot msg

Same line here (Atom N450 GMA 950) that freezes with any 4x linux kernel I threw in.
journalctl (passw "sesameOpen") for the latest failed boot attempt.
Related thread with some logs while having the boot issue: » [kernels 4x] System won't finish bootin and hang after pacman -Syu.
This tiny machine boots and runs fine with kernel linux-3.19.8-ck. Also have linux-4.1.5-1 and linux-4.0.1 in cache (not tested). linux-4.1.6 is the highest version that's available on [Testing].

Re: linux-4.1.2-2 i686 "Failed to find cpu0 device node" boot msg

Still no solution to the error on my machine. There has also been graphical errors occuring, too, the screen display becomes a mess of garbled, mismatched pixels (no guarantee it's related, but they started happening at the same time).

This is an old ASUS EeePC 1000HE and I'm worried that this graphical instability isn't good for it (I'm on assistance and probably cannot afford a newer laptop). I'd like to try an older kernel, since none of these problems, the error message or the graphical problems, happened on the more recent kernel 3x versions.

EDIT (Oct 1st, 2015): Ok, it seems like the graphics issue was an Intel driver issue with me. I fixed it by changing the acceleration method to "uxa" as listed here:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/In … SNA_issues

Nothing unusual seems to be happening because of the cpu0 error, but I could be wrong. Both an Intel driver/ucode and 4.+ kernel upgrade could have happened around the same time, so I correlated the graphics issue to the journalctl error incorrectly.

Re: linux-4.1.2-2 i686 "Failed to find cpu0 device node" boot msg

I have Acer AOD 270 with Intel Atom N2600 and PoverVR graphic aka GMA3600. I have to this message at boot but my system works. Well, it works in text mode, in terminal but as soon as i enable kdm.service/sddm.service and login to GUI mode - black screen.  Funny thing is that .xsession-errors and Xorg.0.logs are clean, nothing here. In Xorg.0.log there is only one message: server terminated. Nothing more. I know that it should have xf86-video-fbdev not xf86-video-intel, but i can't start gui with either of them.

Re: linux-4.1.2-2 i686 "Failed to find cpu0 device node" boot msg

This is actually a critical problem on 64-bit systems, because only one CPU is actually used. That makes a standard 8-CPU system (4 cores by 2 threads) sort of unusable (or crippled at least). However, this doesn't affect the 4.1 kernel series on x86_64. Only 4.2 kernels are affected.

Re: linux-4.1.2-2 i686 "Failed to find cpu0 device node" boot msg

Same issue here.
My Acer AAO 110L vith Atom N260 started showing the dreaded 'Failed to find cpu0 device node' message after upgrading to kernel 4.x (I can't remember if the first 4.x kernel I tried was 4.0.x or 4.1.x).
Even if I can't tell for sure that the error message has something to do with the issue, now my tiny laptop screen goes black after say 5 to 15 minutes from login.
No disk activity, no reaction to keystrokes and no remote access, I can only power it off and reboot.
A couple of times the screen became a garbled mess of coloured pixels instead of going black.
As this is not my primary machine, I didn't investigate further, but now it appears I'm not alone so I'll try to dig a bit more information.

Has anyone actually reported this bug? I can't find any mention of 'Failed to find cpu0 device node' on  bugs.archlinux.org or  bugzilla.kernel.org besides the already mentioned, and seemingly unrelated https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=101621.

Re: linux-4.1.2-2 i686 "Failed to find cpu0 device node" boot msg

The problem is I'm not really sure what to report.
After testing a few old kernels (4.0.x and 4.1.x) the only thing I'm sure of is that my netbook only works flawlessly when running 3.19.x
But on the other hand I've been able to work for a few hours with 4.1.3 (which shows the 'Failed to find ...' message on startup) only noticing a few graphics artifact.
So, the relationship between the error message on boot and the sudden death of the machine or garbled screen, might not be deterministic (or even misleading).
Would a generic bug like 'Atom processors having problems with 4.0+ kernels' help? Is this a graphics driver issue?

This issue is even more worrying now that linux-lts kernel moved to the 4.1.x line

I think we better make a thread about the freezes so we might grab attention of someone who is able to help define what/how to report, something like 'x86 - random freezes since upgrading to 4x kernel'.

Re: linux-4.1.2-2 i686 "Failed to find cpu0 device node" boot msg

I experienced a few more system locks, and noticed that they all happened when the battery was low.
So, the issue I'm facing could be power management related and any connection to the 'Failed to find...' message fully incidental.
In the meanwhile, testing has become cumbersome (swapping kernels, waiting for the battery to reach low level ...)

Same issue since kernel 4.1.4-1 with netbook Point of View mobii with Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU N270   @ 1.60GHz.

Re: linux-4.1.2-2 i686 "Failed to find cpu0 device node" boot msg

I found two pages where the boot message "Failed to find cpu0 device node" is considered harmless:

https://www.reddit.com/r/archlinux/comm … find_cpu0/ says:

This is from an optional generic 'cpufreq_cpu0' module. I think it probably should not exist in most kernels. But I also think it is a harmless error message. 
Basically, it is saying that the device node that it supports does not exist, so it just exits.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1254210 says:

This is a warning message from the OF layer in the kernel.  Since i686 has CONFIG_OF enabled (for OLPC reasons) and your machine doesn't utilize OF or device trees, it errors out.  
There's nothing actually wrong here.

But honestly, I still don't understand anything told there.
