Subject[PATCH] take #2 report_lost_ticks boot parameter should be default
From
Date
Hi,

Forgot sign-off just in case :)

I tried the 2.6.18-mm3 and I tried boot up with acpi=noirq (which is the
same of pci=noacpi), and boots fine without any warning.
And it was a nightmare on stress testings of this two days. At begging I
don't understand why, but after a while I remember try report_lost_ticks
and nightmare ends. The boot parameter reports lost ticket everywhere,
because I (still) need boot up with "notsc".
I believe that it not just my computer that suffer this problem and with
report_lost_ticks by default, we understand quickly that we need boot
with "notsc" or something else. For computer don't crash on a little
stress. Like play a avi movie with mplyer and copy over Ethernet some
others files.

Something like this :
