I've been ignoring this for a while.  While the APIC probe was fixed 
time ago for my SuperMicro board, I'm still getting CMOS damage with 
kernels.  Now that I can finally boot with SMP I guess I may have a 
of tracking down the problem.  My only question is where to start 
I have the same thing here, though I've been busy with too many other 
to mess around with it yet.... :-)

I've had a problem were I can't boot a machine because of an error 
the vm86 code path, I wonder if these could be related.
