Try turning acpi off in the BIOS.
You can also scan the various BIOS config
pages to see that hardware is registered
at irq 11.
As I understand it the BIOS can set up some advanced power
controls that will also manage interrupts and a long list
of hardware functions.
If both the acpi code in the BIOS and the kernel do not sync
up fully an interrupt could be unmapped. An unmapped
interrupt (no interrupt handler) is the no body cared
part of the error.
Caution there are two power management functions an old and a new
nifty but buggy one. Both are A-something and I get them confused to
the point that I write them down after checking my BIOS and then make
reference to that when playing in Linux land.

Use only one of the two power control functions.
