Proposed Fix for Bug 533274: MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC

Bug Report

About

Early in boot, a message pops up: MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC. The workaround is to add the NOAPIC command to the boot options.

Proposal

Since this bug is detectable by the software, why not add a few lines of code to Grub to detect it and automatically add the NOAPIC to the kernel options.
