- On IBM Power E980 systems with a Logical Partition (LPAR) configured with more than 60TB of memory, when the system boots from RHEL 8.2 GA kernel(kernel-4.18.0-193.el8) , soft lockup traces (which cause a kernel taint of 16384) may be observed during the boot procedure from the drmem_init() function.
Though the OS boots properly, these soft lockup traces are still of concern as they may impact either kernel stability or performance.
