2.6.21-rc7-mm2 "irqpoll" seems to be broken

I am booting 2.6.21-rc7-mm2 on x86_64 box with "irqpoll" command line option
and it panics. I can reproduce this problem easily on this box. Please
let me know if serial console output is required.

2.6.21-rc7 works just fine. So problem seems to be in some -mm patch.
