Booting Arch with EFI instead of BIOS, on an Apple Macbook 1,1 (32 bit), I get the following error:

kernel: [ 0.000000] Oops: efitime: can't read time!

I don't have any problems with system time, so I think the log level is too high.

Additional info:
Issue has already been reported at Red Hat:
but the the latest kernel code in git still has KERN_ERR as log level.
This task depends upon

Update: Looks like a patch was sent to linux-kernel

It will be probably be integrated in 3.3 kernel according to Matt Fleming at Intel. Since the bug is non-critical, this task may be closed.
