	I tried both.  MPBIOS and MPACPI.  Neither one seemed to do much different.
With MPBIOS I get an extra "ioapic0: int0 attached to ExtINT ..." and
"local apic: int0 attached to ExtINT ..." but otherwise it looks about
the same.
	"various" ACPI_*_FIXUP?  What else is there besides PCI?  I tried with
ACPI_PCI_FIXUP on and off, didn't help.

	I tried that.  It didn't work: the keyboard only responded sporradically
and garbage got written to the boot disk. :(
