This somehow reminds me of commit
26adcfbf00e0726b4469070aa2f530dcf963f484 (x86: SB600: skip ACPI IRQ0
override if it is not routed to INT2 of IOAPIC).

See also
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11715 and
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11516

Question is why the quirk doesn't work (anymore) on your system.

What was the kernel release used before 3.4.0 was install on your
Laptop?

Please provide dmesg with apic=debug kernel option when kernel 3.4 is
booted?

Can you please try to boot with kernel paramter
acpi_use_timer_override in another test run and with
acpi_skip_timer_override in a 3rd test (and also using acpi=debug in
both cases) and provide dmesg output for those testruns.


Thanks,

Andreas
