Just to try to help, as suggested by Karol Kasimor, disabling the APIC
make the code pass this section. The APIC is now really unconditionnaly
enabled (regardless of BIOS settings) due to this change in 2.5.74...


So this is an interaction between APIC and ACPI... I still think it
should not crash at least...

BTW : I still cannot boot as the radeon framebuffer driver make things
unreable. I will stcik with 2.4 for a while...
