linux-2.6.22-14-generic kernel hangs doesn't boot on gateway mx3417

Bug Description

linux-image-2.6.20-16 boots w/o issues with feisty. The ipw2200 card works.

The linux-image-2.6.22-14-generic from gutsy hangs during boot. The only way to boot successfully is appending acpi=off to the kernel commandline. Unfortunately the ipw2200 fails to work with this option enabled.

I would like to upgrade to gutsy but this bug is a show-stopper.
