Linux uses masking aggressively - disable_irq() is implemented by masking the interrupt in the io apic. I'm surprised that this doesn't cause frequent problems. Perhaps the problem only occurs if an invalid cpu id is written into the target register, as done by Netware? Is someone around with a ne2k-pci card and a AMD-760MPX based system? Regarding Jan's problem: I'm not sure if his problems are related to this errata. It says that using a PS/2 mouse instead of a serial mouse with Novell Netward avoids the hang during shutdown, probably because then netware doesn't mask the irq. -- Manfred
