i remember seeing the same error with earlier firmware version with a
similar system (GP106) once in a while on boot, yet it does not happen
with newer versions. Maybe you could try to update the firmware to the
latest version from kernel-firmware.

As a small addition: I remember deeply: you should ignore the
_OSI(Linux) query, as it may break the system in some ways, if you don't
have a specific bug fixed with adding _OSI(Linux), removing it from the
cmdline is a thing to test!
