Thanks for the pointer to the novell report, Pavel.
I poked at that one and I think it may actually be a table loading issue
for which we've just send a patch to 2.6.26.

Auke,

Please open a signting in bugzilla and attach your dmesg and
acpidump output.

Also, please report if processor.ignore_ppc=1 helps.
