    I don't use ACPI (should I ?) but have the same problem with my
    ECS K7VTA3 5.0C and the onboard Realtek or a 3Com 3C905CX-TXNM,
    although I had and still have other problems without IO-APIC,
    like modprobe bttv instant freezes when USB 2.0 shared the same
    IRQ. To "solve" I moved the card to another slot.

    The problem is that loading USB without IO-APIC still gives
    instant freezes. I first experienced it with bare.i from
    Slackware 9.0 and SuperRescue 2.1.1, which stop at

    hcd.c:ehci-hcd@00:10:3,VIA Technologies, Inc. USB 2.0

    , and later doing the usual modprobe with 2.4.2{0,1}.

    I just tested with 2.4.21. With IO-APIC everything worked
    except the ethernet. Testing USB:

    # modprobe usbcore
    usb.c: registered new driver usbdevfs
    usb.c: registered new driver hub

    # modprobe usb-uhci

    Without IO-APIC (noapic boot option) modprobe usbcore worked,
    but modprobe usb-uhci freezed after printing

    usb-uhci.c: $Revision: 1.275 $ time 01:28:00 Jun 14 2003
    usb-uhci.c: High bandwidth mode enabled
    PCI: Found IRQ 11 for device 00:10:0
    usb-uhci.c: USB UHCI at I/O 0xd400, IRQ 11
    usb-uhci.c: Detected 2 ports
    usb.c: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 1

    I'm starting to think there's something wrong with the
    motherboard as the BIOS couldn't locate my Sound Blaster Live!
    5.1 in any slot. I think I tried everything, also disabling all
    onboard options, RAID, and FireWire. At the end I just sold it
    and am now using the onboard sound.

    USB works on Windows XP Professional SP1 (I could only test a
    game pad) along with the ethernet, and I didn't have to move
    the capture card to get it working there. I moved it to get it
    working on Linux.

    I uploaded my 2.4.21 .config, /proc/{ioports,interrupts,pci},
    and the last 4 dmesg just in case someone is interested.

    BTW, what does noapic do when you enable all APIC options and
    when you don't enable IO-APIC ?
