% grep APIC /usr/src/linux-2.5.69/.config
CONFIG_X86_GOOD_APIC=y
CONFIG_X86_UP_APIC=y
CONFIG_X86_UP_IOAPIC=y
CONFIG_X86_LOCAL_APIC=y
CONFIG_X86_IO_APIC=y

but 'dmesg' on my Dell Latitude C840 laptop tells me:

Dell Latitude with broken BIOS detected. Refusing to enable the local APIC.

Is this nmi_watchdog="forget about it dave" time, or is there some way to
get this to work?
