Subject[PATCH] PNP ACPI: Use real gsi
From: Yinghai Lu <>

In 2.6.35 a lot cleanups in this area (not pnp, but x86 ioapic setup) have
been introduced.
On an IBM Xseries (x3850) this caused the machine to freeze around when
the init userspace process is tried to get started.
The reason is that the timer interrupt is not set up correctly on this machine.

I could bisect the issue to one of ioapic cleanups introduced in 2.6.35:
commit a4384df3e24579d6292a1b3b41d500349948f30b

While on this machine the problem was an interrupt timer issue,
there may be other platforms with different interrupt issues relatd to this
problem. Kernel logs with similar IOAPIC errors inside pnpacpi setup might
need this patch:
pnp 00:04: [io 0x02f8-0x02ff]
IOAPIC[1]: Invalid reference to IRQ 0
pnp 00:04: [irq 2]
pnp 00:04: Plug and Play ACPI device, IDs PNP0501 (active)

Yinghai came up with this patch which fixes the problem for me.
Looks like the bisected commit is correct, but the pnp layer has been
