The patch also applies cleanly to kernel 2.6.5, which is what I am running.
The machine is now running for more than 21 hours with APIC enabled and it
seems it is completely stable now. Without the patch I was able to lock the
system solid in less than a minute by just pushing some MB of data across the
LAN. I have been running continuous network copies of a 400MB file for about
8 hours and experienced no problems.

As a side note: the idle CPU temperature reported by ACPI on my Shuttle
iDeq200N barebone has gone from approx. 50 degrees down to approx. 43
