Yes! I have the same laptop model (Asus X71SL) and pci=nomsi works. This
is indeed better than nolapic as it leaves you use all cores on your
machine. And I believe this restrains the search area for the bug a
little bit. This may be just a motherboard issue, and out of the hands
of the kernel developers, but I do hope this gets resolved someday.
