I don't think it is a getpir issue. The issue is that, increasingly,
the PIR tables in the BIOS are completely wrong. I see this more and
more all the time, but it was
a problem as long as 8 years ago.

It's a hard problem to resolve.

And, of course, the MP and ACPI tables have similar errors. I love PCs :-)
