FWIW, I just tested a current git kernel (v2.6.33-rc2-268-g45d28b0)
with Tejun's patch applied on my N130. The ATA exception and hang is
indeed gone, just "ata1: clearing spurious IRQ" is logged.

I've see Tejun's comment in
and I would like to add that the ATA irq is not shared.

14: 43885 0 IO-APIC-edge ata_piix
15: 0 0 IO-APIC-edge ata_piix
