Subject[Bug 774] New: ACPI interrupt storm when ACPI operates in IO-APIC-level mode

Summary: ACPI interrupt storm when ACPI operates in IO-APIC-level
Kernel Version: 2.5.70 (earlier versions as well)
Status: NEW
Severity: normal

Distribution: Slackware 9.0

Hardware Environment: Tyan Tiger S2723GNN mainboard, 1 GB RAM, two Xeon 2.66 GHz
CPU with Hyperthreading, Bios Version 1.02 (newest)

Software Environment: Unmodified monolithic 2.5.70 Linux kernel, booted with
Lilo 22.5

Problem Description:
During ACPI initialization I get 100 times the following output:

ACPI: Subsystem revision 20030522
irq 9: nobody cared!
Call Trace:

[<c022bb36>] (acpi_irq+0x0/0x16)

Additionally the number of ACPI interrupts is excessive, nearly 4.5 million ACPI
interrupts per minute. The machine does not have this problem when running
2.4.21-rc7, where the ACPI interrupt is configured in XT-PIC mode, whereas
2.5.70 configures it to operate in IO-APIC-level mode. says it may be due to a missing interrupt source
override for the ACPI SCI interrupt.

The ACPI backport in 2.4.21-ac seems to have a similar problem (see Bug #370)

Steps to reproduce:
Run 2.5.70 on aforementioned board. Alternatively send me patches to try or ask
me for additional information.
