I would disagree

There are five cases I am seeing

1. Serverworks total APIC hose ups.
Fix: remove OSB4 or use -ac tree

2. 440BX and similar boards losing interrupts on some drivers
Fix: use -ac

3. APIC errors notably checksum errors.
Fix: buy properly manufactured hardware

4. Hangs on boot with the CUV4XD and a couple of other boards.
Still a mystery

5. Incorrect PCI IRQ routing
Fix: Mostly get a board with a correct BIOS. There are a couple of
cases people are looking at - some are fixed in 2.4.4 and -ac
where magic IRQ lines are not visible directly in PCI space
