[Linux-PowerEdge] M620: Internal CPU error (CPU2) since BIOS 1.3.6

Our G12 blades PE M620 got a BIOS update to version 1.3.6 (together with 
an iDRAC BIOS update).

While this worked without problems we installed new operating systems 
(SuSE SLES11 SP2) with Clonezilla. After this each system showed the 
orange LED (CPU2: IERR). I cleaned the logs and everything went „blue” 
again. The systems are all working without problems, but if I look into 
the warning protocol with OMSA I always see the following error after 

1604	Tue Nov 6 16:35:31 2012	Instrumentation Service	Processor sensor 
	detected a failure value Sensor location: CPU2 Chassis location: 
	Main System Chassis Previous state was: Unknown Processor sensor 
	status: Presence detected, IERR

Since the problem happened after the BIOS update I would like to know if 
other people have the same problem and if it is known to Dell.

Shade and sweet water!
