Still trying to get my laptop sorted with current. I mentioned a few 
weeks ago about "halt -p" not completing having upgraded to current 
and got ioapic sorted.  Having played some more I now see the 
following is the case:

With ioapic enabled in the kernel, bge fails with watchdog timeout 
errors etc unless I define PCI_BUS_FIXUP.  However defining 
PCI_BUS_FIXUP is what causes "halt -p" not to complete and 
furthermore it causes the machine to hang if I unplug the ac adapter 
(to switch to battery).  So is there something in PCI_BUS_FIXUP thats 
not handling power management properly?
