Hmm. Can you verify that the system boots fine if you get rid of
acpi_skip_timer_override as per the hint from Prakash Punnoor?

That is, in the file arch/x86_64/kernel/io_apic.c, find the place where it
does something like

if (nvidia_hpet_detected == 0) {
acpi_skip_timer_override = 1;
printk(KERN_INFO "Nvidia board "
"detected. Ignoring ACPI "
"timer override.\n");

and just comment that whole thing out (or at least the assignment that
sets the "acpi_skip_timer_override" variable to 1).

Andi? You were talking about how the 64-bit machines don't have some of
the cruft that the old PC's have.. It looks like they are accumulating
_more_ cruft than regular x86 ever had...
