SLUB works, if I reboot (Alt+SysRq+B) from a 2.6.22-rc6-mm1 kernel.

Otherwise it will panic with IO-APIC + timer not working.

Differences in dmesg
2.6.22-rc6-mm1 has:
[ 0.000000] Nvidia board detected. Ignoring ACPI timer override.
[ 0.000000] If you got timer trouble try acpi_use_timer_override
and
[ 0.000000] ACPI: BIOS IRQ0 pin2 override ignored.
and
[ 0.000000] TSC calibrated against PM_TIMER

23-rc1-mm1 has:
[ 0.000000] ACPI: IRQ0 used by override.
[ 0.000000] ACPI: IRQ2 used by override.
and
[ 37.340319] ..MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC

I did not need to use acpi_use_timer_override with the older kernel.

Do you need more info about my board/ BIOS/ ACPI tables?

After the warm-boot trick 2.6.23-rc1-mm1 seems stable right now...
