Does your machine have dual processors or a duo core processor?  Irqbalance balances interrupts between multiple processors.  If you do not have multiple processors just diable it in Services and you will not see the error anymore.  

I am thinking that the T60P does have a duo core processor, if that is the case you probably should report it in Bugzilla...
