Likewise, my EPoX 8RDA+ board is working 100% perfectly since the nforce2-apic
fixes were merged in -mm. No spurious interrupts, no weird ACPI glitches,
everything from power management to PCI IRQ routing is just fine.

I'm still not sure I understand the local apic lockups experienced by others,
but anybody considering the purchase of an nForce 2 board can probably put
their mind to rest.

With the 1000Hz timer in linux 2.6, I'd guess your PC had been up for
516847/1000/60 = 8.61 minutes.. Oh, look!
