>From reading the last mail of the thread linked in Comment #1, this is solved
in 2.6.19-rc2: http://lkml.org/lkml/2006/10/20/88

In http://lkml.org/lkml/2006/10/19/179 Eric W. Biederman says about the
MSI IRQ allocator in 2.6.18:

So indeed, fixing this on 10.2 would require to replace the MSI IRQ allocator,
and I don't think it's worth do do that when the simple workaround of
pci=nomsi works and it's fixed in 10.3. Even for SLED10, pci=nomsi sould
be acceptable and we could do this automatically for the X60, based on DMI.

Will or anybody with an X60 could verify the above by adding pci=nomsi to their
kernel agruments in /boot/grub/menu.lst and verify the real fix by installing
the kernel from any 10.3 Alpha or the kernel of the day (KOTD).

Will, can you do this?
