Yes, you'll need to set up an account.  I'd report it as a kernel bug.

I'm not sure what "firmware" is supposed to mean.  If it's the machine 
model, then you can get it in linux by opening a terminal window and 
running "cat /proc/cpuinfo"), or in OSX by clicking on the blue apple 
(upper left corner), selecting "About this Mac", clicking on the "More 
Info" button and then selecting "Hardware".  My iBook is a PowerBook4,3 
and my iMac is a PowerMac8,1.
