Which CPU bugs are you referring to exactly? Because I upgraded a 2960S last week to 15.0.2-SE and it wouldn't boot anymore (Unexpected exception to CPUvector 2000). I RMA'ed the unit, the new one had no problems with the iOS 15 firmware.
I believe CPU vector 2000 is a hardware issue.
The 15.0(2)SE1 is scheduled for release December 2012 but I think it's been pushed back.
Took the plunge and upgraded the 2 x 2960s and 2x 3560s to 15.0.2-SE
Try doing a TDR. You'll get a surprise.
(Heck, I've even posted the TDR bug on my blog.)
Which bit? To run a TDR?
1. Command: test cable tdr interface
2. Depending on the switch model, wait for 5 to 7 seconds (3560, 4500 and 6500 takes 60 seconds); and
3. Command: sh cable tdr interface
I ran the test cable tdr interface fa 0/1 on a trunk link and all was fine, this was on a 2960. The CPU didn't flat line, did I do something wrong? Or is it a hit and miss bug?
Do a "sh interface Fa0/1" (TIP: Look at the status of your protocol) and/or "sh interface status". Look what stands out.
Next, try a different length of cable. Compare the the results. Those are the bugs that we've so far found.
