Not only is your machine floppy drive-less, but the driver thinks you
don't even have a floppy *controller*, which I assume is separate
from the actual drive.

What mainboard do you have? Does it boot without "pci=routeirq"
if you turn CONFIG_BLK_DEV_FD off?

The code in the floppy_init() -> user_reset_fdc() -> WAIT() ->
wait_til_done() -> reset_fdc() path looks pretty scary if there
really is no controller out there. I'd feel much better if
we at least tried to use ACPI to figure out whether we have
a controller before we try to talk to it.

All that aside, I still don't see how the pci=routeirq change
would affect the floppy driver. It does request_irq(6, ...),
and it is interesting that you have this:

ACPI: PCI Interrupt Link [LNKD] enabled at IRQ 6
ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:00:04.0[A] -> GSI 6 (level, low) -> IRQ 6

which is for your NIC. But the floppy controller isn't a PCI
device, so the LNKD enable shouldn't matter to it.

Let's see... you're using the PIC model. Maybe the floppy driver
depends on the ACPI_IRQ_MODEL_PIC stuff in acpi_register_gsi()?
Can you post the contents of /proc/interrupts with the floppy
driver and "pci=routeirq"? It seems weird to have the floppy
and the NIC share an IRQ, but it looks like that's what should
be happening.
