Yes. It fails to work with acpi, mptable, and pirq table. That means [no
option], "acpi=off", and "acpi=off noapic" respectively.

I explained the issue in more detail in my first email qith this patch,
that I had sent a while back.

Alright, but don't mind my asking, how exactly do we do this?

I haven't even touched the ACPI in over month. I'm testing with
"acpi=off". The problem doesn't seem to be IRQ routing, as in routing,
but the IOAPIC refusing to work the way it should work. I've explained
this in more detail in my initial posting.

I'm waiting for the friend who owns this board to pick it up any day
now, so I doubt I will be able to finish it. I've been spinning in
circles for a very long time now. If I can't get it ready, I'd like the
next person who tries to port this board to already have my work as a
starting point.
