I have a caching IDE controller (UltraStor) running 'hdparm -u 1',
an NE2000 clone NIC, a MS busmouse, and 3 other serial ports (of
which only one is occasionally in use at 38400bps). The buffer
overruns occur when transfering across the net via a masqueraded
connection or NFS, or when writing directly to the local HD.

None of the devices seem to generate an extrordinary number of
interrupts (guaged by viewing /proc/interrupts).
