 I haven't got a box currently running 2.6.7, but on 2.6.5 i686 I got
some slightly different memory-type messages, followed by ACPI.  So, I'm
guessing this is yet another acpi-related bug.

 A quick google suggested the boot arg to turn it off might be
'pci=noacpi'.  Of course, if you didn't enable acpi in your config then
it can't be the problem.
