    I wonder if the initialization code puts the chipset to sleep as it is
    setting up the stopgrant control bits?

    Here's a wild hypothesis: module loads, twiddles the registers, and the
    chipset enters sleep mode. In certain cases, enough interrupts are
    unmasked that the next interrupt wakes the chipset up, and things
    continue on their merry way. In other cases, it takes an ACPI interrupt
    (which, in my case, has not been initialized, since my BIOS evidently
    doesn't officially support ACPI C states) to wake things up (e.g. from
    a front-panel button).

    FWIW, I just found this in the dmesg output:

    irq 9: nobody cared!
    Call Trace:
    [<c010b7ba>] __report_bad_irq+0x2a/0x90
    [<c010b8ac>] note_interrupt+0x6c/0xa0

    [<c01ebeb3>] (acpi_irq+0x0/0x16)
    Disabling IRQ #9

    Interestingly enough, I guess the 'button' module has claimed IRQ 9,
    since I have this in /proc/interrupts:

    9: 5013 94989 IO-APIC-edge acpi

    Well, I'm officially confused :-)
