    Despite the fact that this wasn't documented in the BIOS update, an update for
    my board (MS-7030 Neo Platinum by MSI) supposedly fixing "Fan Function"
    actually corrects the IO-APIC and NMI bugs. I now get the following in dmesg

    Calibrating delay loop... 3973.12 BogoMIPS (lpj=1986560)
    Mount-cache hash table entries: 256
    CPU: L1 I Cache: 64K (64 bytes/line), D cache 64K (64 bytes/line)
    CPU: L2 Cache: 512K (64 bytes/line)
    CPU: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3000+ stepping 00
    Using local APIC timer interrupts.
    Detected 12.561 MHz APIC timer.
    testing NMI watchdog ... OK.

    So I'm a happy man. Whether this is at all related to the problems I was
    having before, I don't really know. If the problem doesn't reoccur, I could
    very well have wasted your time.
