GCC2 also affected.

Strange thing is that I am not able to reproduce this bug and do not see anything that would cause general protection exception that early. CPU does rise that exception when reserved bits are set but NX-bit is enabled and used a bit later.

Anyway, hrev45541 fixes a problem with violation of reserved bits and I would appreciate if you could check whether it solves this problem. If it does not I would need a log with TRACE_BOOT enabled (in src/system/kernel/main.cpp).

comment:3 by korli, 8 years ago

I tested a bit. It seems this version of QEMU falsely reports it supports Energy Perf Bias feature when the host CPU does. Removing the use of the corresponding MSR (line 742 of arch_cpu.cpp x86_read_msr(IA32_MSR_ENERGY_PERF_BIAS) ) or forcing a cpu type on the QEMU launch command line are valid workarounds.

We could check for the CPU name for this QEMU version "QEMU Virtual CPU version 1.2.0", but it's probably not so important, and could already be fixed in QEMU trunk. OK for closing as invalid.

Actually, it was our mistake. x86, when asked for a CPUID leaf it does not recognize, returns a value of the basic leaf with the highest number making Haiku incorrectly believe that IA32_MSR_ENERGY_PERF_BIAS is available.

Fixed in hrev45544.
