Sorry, the patch I posted was _instead_ of your previous patch with the quirk,
because that patch didn't work. I don't know why it didn't work, however, I
can only say it didn't work after removing the __i386__ dependency of
acpi_dmi_table[].

My patch is on top of the linux-next tree that didn't contain your patch.
So, my patch adds a quirk that sets disable_irq0_through_ioapic to 1 (this
variable is defined differently in my patch) and uses it to skip the part of
check_timer() that breaks my box.

I hope that makes things clear.

Thanks,
Rafael
