Running recent CURRENT on a Fujitsu Celsius M740 equipted with an Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-1650 v3 @ 3.50GHz CPU makes me some trouble.
FreeBSD does not report the existence or availability of AES-NI feature, which is supposed to be a feature of this type of CPU: dmesg [...] FreeBSD clang version 4.0.0 (branches/release_40 296509) (based on LLVM 4.0.0) VT(efifb): resolution 1920x1200 CPU: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-1650 v3 @ 3.50GHz (3491.99-MHz K8-class CPU) Origin="GenuineIntel" Id=0x306f2 Family=0x6 Model=0x3f Stepping=2 Features=0xbfebfbff<FPU,VME,DE,PSE,TSC,MSR,PAE,MCE,CX8,APIC,SEP,MTRR,PGE,MCA,CMOV,PAT,PSE36,CLFLUSH,DTS,ACPI,MMX,FXSR,SSE,SSE2,SS,HTT,TM,PBE> Features2=0x7dfefbff<SSE3,PCLMULQDQ,DTES64,MON,DS_CPL,VMX,SMX,EST,TM2,SSSE3,SDBG,FMA,CX16,xTPR,PDCM,PCID,DCA,SSE4.1,SSE4.2,x2APIC,MOVBE,POPCNT,TSCDLT,XSAVE,OSXSAVE,AVX,F16C,RDRAND> AMD Features=0x2c100800<SYSCALL,NX,Page1GB,RDTSCP,LM> AMD Features2=0x21<LAHF,ABM> Structured Extended Features=0x37ab<FSGSBASE,TSCADJ,BMI1,AVX2,SMEP,BMI2,ERMS,INVPCID,PQM,NFPUSG> XSAVE Features=0x1<XSAVEOPT> VT-x: PAT,HLT,MTF,PAUSE,EPT,UG,VPID,VID,PostIntr TSC: P-state invariant, performance statistics real memory = 34359738368 (32768 MB) avail memory = 32990359552 (31462 MB) Event timer "LAPIC" quality 600 ACPI APIC Table: <FUJ D3348-A1> FreeBSD/SMP: Multiprocessor System Detected: 12 CPUs FreeBSD/SMP: 1 package(s) x 6 core(s) x 2 hardware threads Security policy loaded: TrustedBSD MAC/BSD Extended (mac_bsdextended) ioapic0 <Version 2.0> irqs 0-23 on motherboard ioapic1 <Version 2.0> irqs 24-47 on motherboard SMP: AP CPU #1 Launched!

[...] This system has the most recent firmware I could find on fujitsu.com. Recent dmidecode doesn't work, it reports [...] root@furor:~ # dmidecode # dmidecode 3.0 Scanning /dev/mem for entry point. # No SMBIOS nor DMI entry point found, sorry. A while ago, I filed a report to Fujitsu's customer service. They stupidly ansered with an extraction of Intel's ARK information regarding the CPU type indicating that the CPU does have AES-NI - they completely ignored the fact that I claimed that this is an hardware malfunction. So, after I reported in I've been using FreeBSD UNIX as the operating system, I received a short answer: UNIX is not supported. So, I'll ask here for some advice and will check the possibility whether FreeBSD is incapable of enabling those features or whether this is a firmware/hardware bug I want Fujitsu to fix. Can someone sched some light on this, please? Are there Haswell XEONs known for bugs like this? Thank you very much in advance, Oliver _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
