Description of problem:
Getting this message on the console of an HP machine (DL380G2) - is this
something to be concerned about?

I was told that there was a fix for this at some point (not informed via
bugzilla, but by our technical rep at Red Hat), but it seems to have resurfaced
or not been corrected.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install any of the Taroon builds on this HP server
2. see error on console when sysinfo ( is run
