Thanks, but it doesn't help for me. Anyway, it may well be because I use
noapic on a SMP box; I'm not sure the 2 CPUs will be useable in such

"noapic" should be okay I think, but I wouldn't guarantee it. That simply stops use of the I/O APICs. It probably depends on motherboard and chipset whether it possible to run in SMP mode with interrupts routed through the legacy PIC.

Anyway, clearly it worked for you with 3.0.0. :-)
