Hi John,
Did this break recently, or did a previous ACPI-mode kernel work

With ACPI enabled, try "acpi_skip_timer_override"
With ACPI enabled, try "noapic"
With ACPI enabled, try "nolapic"

If you can send me a serial console capture with "debug" for the failure
case, that would help. With any successful boot, the dmesg might be
helpful, and the output from lspci -vv and acpidmp is also helpful.
acpidmp is in /usr/sbin or in pmtools here:

You can send this to me, and/or attach them into a bug report here:
and assign it to me.
