Public bug reported:

I saw some other bugreports about this issue but they are all Fix
Commited, but this isn't fixed.

I get this when i boot my Asus Pundit 1 AH2 barebone:

Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel.
[..some numbers..] ..MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC
[..some numbers..] Kernel panic - not syncing: IO-APIC + timer doesn't work! Boot with apic=debug and send report. Then try to boot with the 'noapic' option
[..some numbers..] _

I have this problem on all kernels from dapper to edgy. I have tried
feisty but there is another bug so i can't even boot with the noapic
option. It "Kernel panic"s either way.

When i try the apic=debug option nothing happens, just shows me the same
information as before, but if i use the noapic option it boots as it
should (all but the feisty ones).

Let me know if there is anything i can do to help out.
