[edk2-devel] [Patch V3] EmulatorPkg: don't display the cpu current speed

Posted by Zhiguang Liu 2 weeks ago
REF: https://bugzilla.tianocore.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1686

V3: I hope that changing the status of the mCpuSmbiosType4
    wouldn't affect other features except showing CPU speed.
	The value is zero in NT32Pkg.

It looks like bit 6 means the process is populated, and bits[2:0]==1
means the CPU is enabled.

So, it looks like this change will make SMBIOS indicate the the
processor socket is not populated, and bit2[2:0]==0 means that the CPU
status is unknown.

I think the commit message for this patch should have been:

===

EmulatorPkg: Change SMBIOS processor to unpopulated

This change updates the SMBIOS processor information to indicate that
the processor is not populated, and that it's status is unknown.

With this change the processor speed will not be shown in setup.

Ref: https://bugzilla.tianocore.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1686

===

But, I'm not sure I agree we should make this change to fix this bug.
I'm not particularly concerned with this bug, but I wonder if perhaps
the MdeModulePkg should just suppress the item if the speed is 0.

Or, alternately, perhaps we can investigate some methods to attempt to
determine the processor speed. I guess for all OS's, it might be
difficult, but we probably could support finding the processor speed
under the most common environments.

Thanks for the comments.
I will change the commit message in the next version.
But I don't think this is a issue worth making a major change.
Given that the change is consistent with NT32, will you agree with this change?

Best Regards,
Zhiguang Liu

Hmm. You are right that NT32 also does this. I don't agree enough to
give you a Reviewed-by, but if Andrew or Ray give a Reviewed-by, then
I'm ok for us to take the patch.

Posted by Zhiguang Liu 1 week ago
Thanks for the reply.
I understand now that this is not a very proper change.
I will talk to the bug  reporter in Bugzilla to see if  we can keep the current status.

Best Regards,
Zhiguang Liu
