btw, is anyone else on the list suffering in silence with an HP or Acer
system with 2.5GB or more of RAM which either doesn't boot or whose USB
ports don't work? I'm trying to get an accurate evaluation of the level
of impact of this issue. If you are, please try booting with the
'iommu=soft' kernel parameter and if it helps you, PLEASE SAY SO! (also,
comment on bug #524808). Thanks.
