This is a table of tests and results: (I can't make it look nice in this wiki)
Kernel opt...wifi...............Xorg.0.log error
pci=noacpi...doesn't work...Fail:edge-trigered error. not receiving interrupts error. not receiving interrupts
acpi=off.......doesn't work...Fail:edge-trigered

So the trick on my thinkpad t61, with Nvidia Quadro NVS 140M, and Atheros wifi card, is the kernel option irqpoll.
Looks like I can't swtich between virutal consoles (ctrl-alt-F1, etc) once I start X, which I have never seen before.

I got framebuffer working with vesafb, but when I try to use nvidiafb I get:
nvidiafb: Device ID: 10de0429
nvidiafb: unknown NV_ARCH
