I am seeing a strange message on bootup of my PC164 about "no timer
interrupts on CPU 0". I have only had this system for about 2 weeks, but
this is the first time I've seen this. I am running 1.5.2 and the system
seems to be working otherwise without problem. Before I dive into this any
further, is there any cause for alarm here? Here is the output I am seeing
(booting via serial console):
CPU 0 booting
(boot dka600.6.0.9.0 -flags A)
block 0 of dka600.6.0.9.0 is a valid boot block
reading 15 blocks from dka600.6.0.9.0
bootstrap code read in
base = 180000, image_start = 0, image_bytes = 1e00
initializing HWRPB at 2000
initializing page table at 172000

Jumping to entry point...

I also see the "no timer interrupts on CPU 0" message when I halt back to
the SRM (V5.5-1 Jul 14 1999 12:37:45).
