Actually, there was an ordering problem, which was causing an oops on
boot. But, that doesn't help with IRQ routing.

The problem is that ACPI IRQ routing doesn't work at all in 2.5.14 if you
have support for APICs enabled in any way.

I've tried .14-virgin, .14-dj1 and .14-pci, each with and without ACPI
enabled, and with and without APIC support enabled on UP, and with and
without SMP enabled. The results are consistent:

acpi apic irq?
yes yes no
yes no yes
no yes yes

The ACPI people are working on this problem. Their latest patch
(20020503) plus Dominik Brodowski's latest patch applied to .14-virgin
allow me to get IRQs assigned. However, the relevant ACPI changes are are
wrapped up in many other changes to the subsystem...
