I guess the stream of badness was occured as follows:

    pcibios_disable_device() for ia64 assumes that pci_enable_device()
    and pci_disable_device() are balanced. But with 'properly stop
    devices before power off' patch, pci_disable_device() becomes to be
    called twice for e1000 device at halt time, through reboot_notifier_list
    callback and through device_suspend(). As a result, iosapic_unregister_intr()
    was called for already unregistered gsi and then stream of badness
    was displayed.

I think the following patch will remove this stream of badness. I'm
sorry but I have not checked if the stream of badness is actually
removed because I'm on vacation and I can't look at my display
(I'm working via remote console). Could you try this patch?

By the way, I don't think this stream of badness is related to hang up,
because the problem (hang up) was reproduced even on my test kernel that
doesn't call pcibios_disable_device().

There might be some cases that pci_disable_device() is called even if
the device is already disabled. In this case, pcibios_disable_device()
should not call acpi_pci_irq_disable() for the device.
