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