Subjectendless APIC error messages..
Yes, I know, I've got a busted ABIT-BP2 system board.

Running 2.4, I get thousands of the APIC error messages, which fill my
syslog.

Is there a reason for this constant spewing? The short little patch,
that simply does stops the system from complaining any more - it's
busted - we know that.
