Just following up my own post...

I _did_ see that huge among of interrupts in eata_dma.

However, I have determinted that is not causing the mouse problems
I'm seeing.

2.1.126 is also giving me problems with /dev/psaux and there is
no interrupt problem here.

For me, erratic mouse behavior and SCSI tape failures are the only
problems I'm having in 2.1 right now.
