  The following message is being posted to the linux message log on Firestone systems, and we need to know what action to take.
   - is this caused by a code bug that needs to be fixed?
   - does the message indicate a real hardware problem?
     or can the message be ignore?

  Until we here otherwise, manufacturing is ignoring this message

  dmesg --level=alert,crit,err

  "SYSPARAM: Opal sysparam node not found" we get this warning on firestone system for every boot because For OpenPower BMC machines we do not place any sysparams in the device tree.

  This issue is addressed in the attached patch and patch is available in upstream.
  We need to backport following patch in ubuntu to address this issue.
