Upgrading to BIOS version A08 did not help, the problem remains. It
seems that the kernel (2.4.18-686) reenables the APIC:
(this is in accordance with the reported bahaviour in bug #139617)
kernel: Local APIC disabled by BIOS -- reenabling.
kernel: Found and enabled local APIC!
kernel: Kernel command line: BOOT_IMAGE=2418 ro root=303 noapic
kernel: Using local APIC timer interrupts.
kernel: calibrating APIC timer ...
Seems that I have to compile a custom kernel to see if APIC can be
turned off, and resolve the problem this way.
