    Nobody mixed up 2 and 9. It was intentional, but ddoesn't work as planned.
    If you leave IRQ 9 enabled, then at least on the Intel DK440LX motherboards
    the IO-APIC code is failing to properly set up IRQ 9 and causing system
    problems (I've now seen at least three reports of problems with IRQ 9
    disabled). If you leave it disabled, then the DK440LX works like a champ,
    but apparently other motherboards break. Time to try and figure out why IRQ
    9 on the DK440LX won't work if it isn't disabled.
