It's called PowerStack Series E.

I had the same problem with 2.4.5, .7-pre3 and .8-pre3. I haven't watched
the interrupts then, but it showed the same symptoms. (keyboard, mouse,
network, scsi are stalled but graphic card is still working)

This night I compiled 2.4.10-pre12 (from MontaVista rsync) and still the
same. (Thank you, Geert, the video-mode kernel parameter works fine; fbcon
gives me 1024x768 directly after bootup now)

One keypress or release of a mouse button causes about 20 interrupts and
sometimes one or two BAD interrupts. (BTW, it's the same on my so far most
stable 2.2.17) Should be normally 4 interrupts (and of course no BAD one)?
