45 issues detected on XPS L321X (13)

Dear Support Centre,

I would like to draw your attention on the results I got running the Firmware Test Suite (FWTS) on the XPS L321X.

The Software detected 45 problems, some of them deemed of high consideration.

As I cannot attach the log result, and there are restrictions for posting messages, I will copy the results in the body of this and the following messages.

Please, be aware in my laptop I replaced the original SDD with a KINGSTON SKC600MS of 512 GB. This might influence the final results.

I know the XPS L321X is quite and old machine, but still, I think that taking a look at those issues might help in solving some problems XPS L321X users might encounter.

It is worth to remember that despite having run FWTS on Linux, the software performs sanity checks on system firmware, including ACPI, CPU configuration, PCI/PCIe configuration, power management, security, etc. Regardless of the installed OS. Which means, it makes sure the machine firmware/Bios correctly works with Windows too.

Best regards

klog: Scan kernel log for errors and warnings.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Test 1 of 1: Kernel log error check.
Kernel message: [ 0.157566] ENERGY_PERF_BIAS: Set to 'normal', was 'performance'

ADVICE: This is not exactly a failure but a warning from the kernel. The
MSR_IA32_ENERGY_PERF_BIAS was initialized and defaulted to a high performance
bias setting. The kernel has detected this and changed it down to a 'normal'
bias setting.

FAILED [MEDIUM] KlogBiosMtrrsInconsistentAcrossCPUs: Test 1, MEDIUM Kernel
message: [ 0.157566] mtrr: your CPUs had inconsistent variable MTRR settings

ADVICE: The variable Memory Type Range Registers (MTRRs) which define memory
caching policy are not consistent across all CPUs which is a firmware bug. The
kernel has worked around this bug, but it may be worth getting the BIOS vendor
to fix this.

Kernel message: [ 0.177395] ACPI: [Firmware Bug]: BIOS _OSI(Linux) query ignored

ADVICE: This is not exactly a failure mode but a warning from the kernel. The
_OSI() method has implemented a match to the 'Linux' query in the DSDT and this
is redundant because the ACPI driver matches onto the Windows _OSI strings by
default.

FAILED [LOW] KlogAcpiSystemIOConflictLpcIchWatchDogTimer: Test 1, LOW Kernel
message: [ 1.198224] lpc_ich: Resource conflict(s) found affecting gpio_ich

ADVICE: A resource conflict has occurred between ACPI OperationRegions and the
same I/O region used by the lpc_ich driver for the General Purpose I/O (GPIO)
region. Sometimes this GPIO region is used by the firmware for rfkill or LED
controls or very rarely for the Embedded Controller System Control Interrupt.
This may require deeper inspection to check if the conflict will lead to any
real issues. However, in the vast majority of cases this warning can be ignored
as no harm will occur.

Found 9 unique errors in kernel log.

Test 146 of 207: Test _PCL (Power Consumer List).
FAILED [CRITICAL] AETtype: Test 146, Detected error 'Type' when evaluating

ADVICE: The type of an object is incorrect and does not match the expected type.
ACPI will generally abort execution of the AML op-code that causes this error.

Test 2 of 4: Test DMI/SMBIOS tables for errors.
SMBIOS table loaded from /sys/firmware/dmi/tables/DMI
FAILED [LOW] DMISerialNumber: Test 2, String index 0x03 in table entry
'Processor Information (Type 4)' @ 0x000e1020, field 'Serial Number', offset
0x20 has a default value 'Not Supported by CPU' and probably has not been
updated by the BIOS vendor.

ADVICE: The DMI table contains data which is clearly been left in a default
setting and not been configured for this machine. Somebody has probably
forgotten to define this field and it basically means this field is effectively
useless, however the kernel does not use this data so the issue is fairly low.


ADVICE: It may be worth checking against section 7.5 of the System Management
BIOS (SMBIOS) Reference Specification (see http://www.dmtf.org/standards
/smbios).

Test 3 of 4: Validate the MTRR setup across all processors.
Detected CPUs with inconsistent variable MTRR settings which the kernel fixed.
FAILED [MEDIUM] MTRRCPUsMisconfigured: Test 3, It is probable that the BIOS does not set up all the CPUs correctly and the kernel has now corrected this misconfiguration.
