    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
