I get the following warning:

/netbsd: Warning: received processor correctable error.

once or twice a week on average on my Miata running NetBSD 1.5.
Has anyone else seen this and is it something I should be concerned

The first few lines from dmesg are:

/netbsd: Digital Personal WorkStation 533au, 531MHz
/netbsd: 8192 byte page size, 1 processor.
/netbsd: total memory = 256 MB
/netbsd: (2264 KB reserved for PROM, 253 MB used by NetBSD)
/netbsd: avail memory = 230 MB
/netbsd: using 1637 buffers containing 13096 KB of memory

/netbsd: cpu0 at mainbus0: ID 0 (primary), 21164A-0 (unknown minor type 0)

/netbsd: cia0: using BWX for PCI config access
/netbsd: cia0: WARNING: Pyxis pass 1 DMA bug; no bets...

Note: the CPU is not being overclocked -- it's a 533MHz 21164.
