You might run into trouble here on the ES7000 -- though I don't know
if anybody is booting a modern kernel on one of those these days.

IIR, ES7000 treated the bottom 16 as a special case.
When there was an irq shortage, I think they used overrides
to map higher PCI irqs into the empty spots below 16,
but I think to make room for them they may have mapped
some of the ISA irqs to high numbers. Fuzzy memory
on this at the moment...
