2.2 merely ignores APIC errors. that doesn't mean they don't happen...

naughty, naughty.
I've never known any dual FSB100-overclocked celeron machine to run stably.

> APIC error on CPU0: 00(08)

read as "apic hardware detected a corrupt inter-processor message
and automatically retried it". unfortunately, the checksum is weak,
so with even a modest stream of such errors, there will be uncaught ones.

also, this covered in the kernel FAQ.
