I have not talked to ASUS. I note from peoples postings that with the
latest award bios we may need no apic patches (C1 disconnect auto),
just an ioapic one to work round a buggy bios. I don't think you can run
nmi_watchdog=1 with the old io-apic (not of my doing) patch.

I have pheonix bios MOBOS from albatron and epox so award bios doesn't help me.
No disconnect options available in setup.
My apic ack delay patch lets the bios have its disconnect on and keep the cpu a
few degrees cooler besides whatever else it and the nforce2 chipset might want
to control it for.

I have been advised my query wrt my apic ack delay patch is progressing
with AMD but I have nothing technical to report on it.

I have made and am trialling, but have not yet posted a kernel arg controlled
version combining my v1 and v2 apic ack delay patches. This would be better
than what I have released in the past because people can fix bioses as the
fixes become available and use timer ack delay in the mean time.
Of course there is still athcool and the earlier disconnect patch to force
things if desired.
