    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.
