Hmm, I can see what the problem is now -- you can mask the input of the
primary I/O APIC in this case (with no side effects), making other sources
at that line suffer, but at least you get away.

Anyway, my other questions remain open. How is the INTx message actually
delivered to the ICH? And why is the command line option needed?
