     Intel Xeon E5540 Quad-core (2.53GHz 8MB Cache 1066MHz)    
     Processor (80 W), Option 46C7872                          
- The system is configured with at least one of the following: 
     Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, any update                    
     SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10, any service pack         
     SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11, any service pack         
  Notice: This does not imply that the network operating system
          will work under all combinations of hardware and     
          software.                                            
  Please see the compatibility page for more information:      
http://www.ibm.com/servers/eserver/serverproven/compat/us/
- The system has the symptom described above.                  
WORKAROUND:                                                    
There are four (4) workarounds for this issue.                 
Workaround 1:                                                  
Update the UEFI/IMM firmware using the IMM web interface or    
AMM. See the "IMM Firmware Update for Linux" README file at the
following URL:                                                 
http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=psg1MIGR-5079601
Workaround 2:                                                  
Update the UEFI/IMM/DSA Preboot firmware using Bootable Media  
Creator.                                                       
Workaround 3:                                                  
Add the boot parameter "acpi=off" when booting up the system:  
1. Boot up the system and press "e" in the GRUB booting menu   
   list.                                                       
2. Choose "kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-128.el5 ro                   
   root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet" and press "e" to  
   edit.                                                       
3. Add boot parameter "acpi=off" at the end.                   
   For example:                                                
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-128.el5 ro                      
        root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet acpi=off      
4. Press Enter.                                                
5. Choose "kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-128.el5 ro                   
   root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet acpi=off" and press
   "b" to boot into the kernel.                                
6. Perform UEFI/IMM/DSA Preboot firmware updates.              
7. After flashing firmwares, remove the parameter and reboot   
   the system.                                                 
Workaround 4:                                                  
Change the setting of CPU C-states in UEFI from <Enable> to    
<Disable>:                                                     
1. When prompted during System POST, press <F1> to enter the   
   Setup Utility.                                              
2. Select System Settings. Press Enter.                        
3. Select Processors. Press Enter.                             
4. Select CPU C-States. Press Enter.                           
5. Select Disable. Press Enter.                                
6. Select Save Settings. Press Enter.                          
7. Select Exit Setup. Press Enter.                             
8. Return to the System Configuration and Boot Management page.
9. Press <Y> to Exit the Setup Utility. The System will reboot 
   with the new Settings applied.                              
DETAILS:                                                       
Intel, Red Hat, SUSE, and IBM are still investigating this     
issue.                                                         
C-States settings are believed to be related to this issue.    
C-states are a part of the Advanced Configuration and Power    
Interface (ACPI) specification and allow processors to go into 
a low power mode when they are not busy. With Nehalem Central  
Processing Units (CPUs), individual cores can be put into a    
reduced power mode to save energy
