    hm, perhaps it could confuse some of the more complex shared-IRQ-aware
    device drivers, such as IDE. But your patch is very tempting nevertheless,
    it removes much of the disadvantage of sharing interrupt lines. Most of
    the handlers on the chain are supposed to be completely independent.
