My guess is not true.

The result of /proc/interrupts and lspci are attached at the tail.

IRQ19 is shared by aic7xxx and Vortex Aureal sound chip.
Even if the sound card is removed, massive interrupts exist.

My BOIS was set to use MPS-1.4. But if I changed it to use MPS-1.1,
the interrupts disappeared.

As Harold suggested that:

It may be the case.

In this experiment, I used the latest bios 'BP6 LP BIOS+HPT366 beta
BIOS v1.21', released several day ago.

Even if I use MPS-1.4 setting, Linux booting messages said "MPS 1.1",
what's curious.


I added /proc/interrupts and slightly edited 'lspci -v' output for
(un)informative data.
