Considering that "turn off SMP support" is a solution to the problem... ;-)
Nobody seems to know more than "an interupt has been triggered when it
shouldn't have been" and I don't know of any case where this has lead to
problems. So as long as your system is stable and you aren't getting this one
by the ton (normal behaviour un my uniprocessor systems is once per startup
and then very rarely), you're pretty much safe.
