SubjectSpurious interrupt and local-APIC
I've got a box here which has been locking up from time to time. And when 
i finally disabled local-APIC (UP box) its stopped. One thing to note is
that it always generated spurious interrupt messages for a device in a
particular PCI slot (slot 1, Pin A). Here are some details...

Now with local-APIC disabled i don't get the spurious interrupt message
when the SCSI HBA gets initialised, plus no more errors reported, if
anyone wants any more information i'd be glad to provide it.
