OTOH I specifically *enabled* it with "athcool on" (which implies ACPI 
is on) and it never gave me a problem. And know what? I also have 
(apparently) local APIC irq routing enabled:

I have the usual dxr3 problems but *never* a complete lockup (crossing 
fingers). Usually I can either restart vdr by blindly pressing the 
remote keys, or wait for the vdr timeout to kick in. Very rarely I have 
to login to the vdr machine and issue a "killall -KILL vdr", but even in 
those cases vdr happily restarts.
