Hm. I am not. The Soekris is my only device with an E6xx CPU. This one is special, as Soekris does not implement ACPI.
I don't know, how other E6xx systems do work. I guess, there will have ACPI. There seem not to be many out there.
This patch is now running for about six months without any problems for me.

I was also searching for some other systems. I found here only one manual.
There are at least the same vendor/device id shown, as used also in Soekris.

Is there maybe any possibility to check for the specific Soekris model? At least MPTABLE identifies the Soekris:
[ 0.000000] MPTABLE: OEM ID: Soekris
[ 0.000000] MPTABLE: Product ID: net6501
[ 0.000000] MPTABLE: APIC at: 0xFEE00000
