I see the following kernel message in system logs:
linux-kernel-bde 0000:01:00.0: vpd r/w failed. This is likely a firmware bug on this device. Contact the card vendor for a firmware update.
- Cumulus Linux, all versions
This message can be ignored.
This message is triggered by a harmless PCI non-conformity in the Broadcom ASIC. It can be produced by running
lspci -vv on the command line.
lspci is also run by cl-support, which is a common trigger for this message.
