SubjectRe: Lots of con-current I/O = resets SATA link? (2.6.25.10)

It's not the best way to deal with it, more just a workaround, and if it
does help it should be reported because it indicates something else is
wrong. The main downsides to disabling APIC is that all interrupts will
be handled by one core and you'll end up with much more IRQ sharing.
Disabling ACPI on modern systems tends to be a bad idea, you'll get no
multi-core support, for one.

Can you post your dmesg from bootup with the controller/drive detection?
