    Subjectspurious interrupt with ac kernel but not with vanilla 2.4.9

    I noticed that on the abit kt7A MBs that i have, with via KT133A chipset,
    after i installed the kernel 2.4.9-ac10 (ac11 and 12 as well),
    at boot i get this message,

    Sep 21 11:52:11 DarkStar kernel: ice 00:0b.0
    Sep 21 11:52:11 DarkStar kernel: spurious 8259A interrupt: IRQ7.
    immediatelly before scsi adaptec detection and inizzializzation.

    doing a cat /proc/interrupt I can read

    ERR: 1

    As many people I have parport on irq 7, and the parport simply works
    anyway (tested with a printer).

    I was thinking to an HW problem, but with vanilla 2.4.9 kernel I do not
    get this message, and the code in arch/i386/kernel/i8259.c that should
    detect this spurious interrup is just the same on those two kernels.
    Changes are related to X86_IO_APIC, and I think this is the reason why
    this spurious interrupt is detected, but I would like to know if i should
    think I have some HW problem going on that stardard kernels do not detect.
