SubjectRe: nforce2 lockups
I downloaded and applied the acpi patch patch_2.4.22-rc2_to_acpi-2.4-20030813.bz2 from:

and it did cure my spurious interrupt problem, but unfortunately, my lockups have returned.

It is strange that kernel 2.4.22-rc2 had never locked up at all (only with apic enabled). Ran it for a good week or so with absolutely no lockup (again, only with apic enabled). I tried my best to make it lockup and it never did, but the spurious interrupts made any device that loaded with IRQ 16 and above pretty much worthless. If I disabled apic, my lockups returned.

So there was something about 2.4.22-rc2 (with acpi enabled), that prevented lockups (but had tons os spurious interrupts). Something in patch_2.4.22-rc2_to_acpi-2.4-20030813.bz2 cured the spurious interrupts, but brought back the lockups.
