skiboot-5.3.2 was released on Friday August 26th, 2016.

This is the 3rd stable release of skiboot 5.3, the new stable release of skiboot (first released with 5.3.0 on August 2nd, 2016).

Skiboot 5.3.2 replaces skiboot-5.3.1 as the current stable version. It contains a few minor bug fixes.

Over skiboot-5.3.1, the following fixes are included:

  • opal/hmi: Fix a TOD HMI failure during a race condition. Rare race condition which meant we wouldn’t recover from TOD error

  • lpc: Log LPC SYNC errors as unrecoverable ones for manufacturing Only affects systems in manufacturing mode. No behaviour change when not in manufacturing mode.

  • hw/phb3: Update capi initialization sequence The capi initialization sequence was revised in a circumvention document when a ‘link down’ error was converted from fatal to Endpoint Recoverable. Other, non-capi, register setup was corrected even before the initial open-source release of skiboot, but a few capi-related registers were not updated then, so this patch fixes it. The point is that a link-down error detected by the UTL logic will lead to an AIB fence, so that the CAPP unit can detect the error.
