There are differences in interrupt-handling between 2.2.17 and 2.4.3. I
could have sworn that in 2.2.x, my interrupts ran up to 19 on this SMP
Abit VP6. Now, in 2.4.3-ac12, I see in /proc/interrupts:
0: 155978 151576 IO-APIC-edge timer
1: 9152 8407 IO-APIC-edge keyboard
2: 0 0 XT-PIC cascade
5: 0 0 IO-APIC-level usb-uhci, usb-uhci
8: 1 1 IO-APIC-edge rtc
11: 11912 11979 IO-APIC-level ide2, ide3, EMU10K1
14: 4223 4025 IO-APIC-edge ide0
15: 15848 16004 IO-APIC-level sym53c8xx, PCnet/PCI II 79C970A
The rationale behind this isn't quite clear to me, but it works.
And the gosts of hope walk silent halls
At the death of the promised land
All is gone, all is gone
But these changing winds can turn cold and hostile
