From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130

Description of problem:
Both the 2.4.18-24.7.x and 2.4.18-27.7.x athlon smp kernels
don't allow me to do a soft reboot on a Tyan K7 (760MP)
dual Athlon system. Trying to do a 'shutdown -r' results
in the kernel printing 

APIC error on CPU0: 08(08)

in an endless loop onto the screen at the next system startup.
Doing a hard reset (pushing the rest button) fixes the issue.
Kernel 2.4.18-18.7.x doesn't have this problem. The problem
also doesn't show with kernel 2.4.18-27.7.x on a Tyan K7X
(AMD 760MPX) dual athlon system.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot system
2. do a 'shutdown -r


Actual Results:  computer printed endless error message loop

Expected Results:  system should have restarted
