Since i installed linux on an Intel DZ77BH-55K i get the below message in my logs on every boot. (It might also be a problem with earlier kernels but 3.3.7 was the first i installed on this machine.)

When i disable Firewire from the BIOS the message goes away. After a question in the ieee1394 users mailing list the problem was specified to be a misrouted interrupt. Upgrading the BIOS caused problems with UEFI (i downgraded but doesn't matter for this) but you could still see the message when booting.

kernel drivers:

firewire_ohci          31653  0
firewire_core          52733  1 firewire_ohci
crc_itu_t               1363  1 firewire_core

As implied in thread "Firewire related problems with 3.3.7+ kernels." on
linux1394-user (http://marc.info/?t=134651740400005), this is not an
IEEE1394 driver bug.

Can the kernel do anything about that at all?

Firmware problem, you might find booting with the irqpoll option helps but if not there's not much can be done until the BIOS is fixed

Thanks for the answer. Sadly intel "Doesn't support Linux on this motherboard" and even though their support was helpful to one extend i doubt they will do anything to fix the irq and UEFI booting problems on this HW. 

Thanks again for your time.
