Clearly not, it doesn't disable anything (in case it's not obvious, I'm
looking for a real fix, not for a work-around). I managed to put my
hands on a previously failing SMP box with PCI_MSI enabled, and 1.5-00
does fix the issue there. So the current issue we are discussing must be
Could you redo test #1 disabling Xenomai, and dump /proc/interrupts on
your box? TIA,
