Sorry! You are right, i did not had time for write it down
becouse it is a production system.
But i grepped the source and found the right message in:
./arch/i386/kernel/apic.c so the message i seen was:
printk("ESR value before enabling vector: %08lx\n", value);

and the system stopped booting after that.
(This is a MP motherboard with one processor.)

makes system boot!

I attach the lcpci -v output hoping it will help.
