Description Tom Bjerck 2008-12-22 13:19:36 EST
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/2008121622 Fedora/3.0.5-1.fc10 Firefox/3.0.5

First indication that something is wrong is that the mouse pointer gets very slow. Then a message in /var/log/messages:
kernel: irq 16: nobody cared (try booting with the "irqpoll" option)
kernel: Disabling IRQ #16
The machine will not shut down properly after this error, and a hard shutdown with the power button is neccessary.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Fedora 10.
2. Log in.
3. After minutes or hours irq 16 may be disabled.
Actual Results:  
Mouse becomes slow. Irq 16 disable. System can not shut down properly.

Expected Results:  
Mouse working smoothly. Irq 16 not disabled. Be able to shut down system properly.

No devices are plugged into any USB or PCMCIA slots.

I am pretty sure my problem is connected to this one.

I have a Dell Optiplex GX270, with the latest BIOS updates and a Maxtor SATA Disk.

I was trying to install Fedora 10 in it, and everything was going ok, until I reboot for the first time.  I got a "Disabling IRQ #18" message on the console, and after that the disk freezes, freezing also the whole shutdown process.

After some debugging I found that I could easily reproduce the error by shutting down the network (service network stop), and sometimes can get the disk back to life by restarting the network (issuing a service network start).

This dmesg has been generated in a boot with options "noapic irqpoll irqfixup"

Note that the noapic option only changed the trouble IRQ number, but solved no problem at all.

Also, note that I have no USB device connected, so the IRQ competition is only between e1000 and sata piix.

Output of cat /proc/interrupts

Note the very high count of network/sata interrupts.  They have raised a lot after the "service network stop" command.  BTW, this remembers me: For some seconds the keyboard was not responsive after this command, probably because of the interrupt storm.

Just in case...

As you can see, it just a plain simple Intel computer.  If only Dell let me have some more BIOS options...

@Tom: you problem looks a lot like a dupe of Bug 474624

I also am experiencing the same issue on Lenovo T61 Fedora 10 x86. Please email me if you require further details.

Looks like a duplicate of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=474624
Comment 16 Charles R. Anderson 2009-04-14 08:49:45 EDT
pci=msi needs a newer kernel to fix this issue, probably 2.6.29, because the
2.6.27 kernel forcibly disables MSI on the GMA965 graphics chip, even with
pci=msi.  I'm closing this as a duplicate of #474624.
