I can confirm that my Soyo KT400 has I/O APIC problems. It works for a
few devices, but adding more than one PCI card starts up the wierdness.
Disabling apic makes it happy again. For a while I thought it was just a
linksys if_sk being flakey, but taking it out and putting a firewire card
in had similar interrupt wierdness.
I guess that means I can test any attempts to fix this :)
