Nobody else seems to have mentioned this, but if (as the error suggests:-) you pass the "irqpoll" option to the kernel, it does boot.  This makes me think this is a duplicate of the following bug:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-source-2.6.22/+bug/123617

To pass the option to the kernel at boot, you can hit the 'e' key while the relevant kernel is highlighted in the GRUB menu.  Once booted you can edit the file
/boot/grub/menu.lst

Look for a section like this,

title		Ubuntu 7.10, kernel 2.6.22-14-generic
root		(hd0,2)
kernel		/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-14-generic root=UUID=62026ec1-9a6b-4e23-9bf7-b6482997fb3e ro quiet splash
initrd		/boot/initrd.img-2.6.22-14-generic
quiet

Add "irqpoll" (without the quotes) to the end of the line beginning
"kernel", so afterwards you will have,

title		Ubuntu 7.10, kernel 2.6.22-14-generic
root		(hd0,2)
kernel		/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-14-generic root=UUID=62026ec1-9a6b-4e23-9bf7-b6482997fb3e ro quiet splash irqpoll
initrd		/boot/initrd.img-2.6.22-14-generic
quiet

This should fix things.  Do the same for all the other kernels this
problem is showing up with.
