    SubjectACPI interrupt storm (was Re: Linux 2.4.21rc6-ac1)

    I am here experiencing almost same behavior, but I didnt collected enough
    data to isolate the problem
    few points:
    1. It is new acpi code, backported by alan in latest -ac. Previous (2.4)
    acpi "works" (err, it's outdated and more but at least no interrupt storm).
    I didnt tried running 2.5 on the target machine yet.

    2. all other devices working fine. The only visible things are slow mouse
    responsiveness and >60k interrupts per second at vmstat output

    The box is p4-based fujitsu scenic. More information is available on request.
    And I will try 2.5 on it soon.
