Bug#586494: linux-image-2.6.26-2-686: Dell PowerEdge 4200's don't work with 2.6.26

Okay, I tied acpi=noirq with the stock lenny 2.6.26 kernel, and it
looks like the same exact problem still. I can capture a dmesg for
that as well if you want though, but I didn't have the connected
serial machine up at the time.

Ok, I am currently compiling the 2.6.32 debianized kernel with the
config from the lenny package. I tried to manually install the .deb,
but there were too many dependency differences in it to pull in, so I
opted to just recompile. It will take a few hours, so rather than
email you back after I try it, I will try 2.6.32 with stock config
with and without acpi=noirq, the 2.6.34 from experimental with and
without noirq, and a vanilla set of kernels hand tuned to the exact
hardware the system has, and then get back to you. Unless I hear back
from you sooner of course.
