Bug#316848: kernel-source-2.6.8: "BIOS handoff failed" error loading ehci_hcd module on Asus P4P800 mainboard

Package: kernel-source-2.6.8
Version: 2.6.8-16
Severity: normal

I have compiled my  kernel from the Debian sources (2.6.8-16) and I havo
found that on an Asus P4P800 mainboard (that worked with 2.4.26) when I
do "modprobe usb-ehci" I get the following error in syslog:

casa kernel: ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:00:1d.7[D] -> GSI 23 (level, low) -> IRQ 23
casa kernel: ehci_hcd 0000:00:1d.7: Intel Corp. 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) USB2 EHCI Controller
casa kernel: ehci_hcd 0000:00:1d.7: BIOS handoff failed (104, 1010001)
casa kernel: ehci_hcd 0000:00:1d.7: can't reset
casa kernel: ehci_hcd 0000:00:1d.7: init 0000:00:1d.7 fail, -95
casa kernel: ehci_hcd: probe of 0000:00:1d.7 failed with error -95

The module gets loaded but usb2 peripherals fail to work completely.

I have googled for some more info, and found that this is a known issue
with kernel 2.6.8 and some BIOSes. 

Here is a link to a discussion about it:
