    We can also use the $PIR rom table. This gives you a table of the PCI irq
    routing, at least for the primary bus.

    With ACPI the ACPI database gives a semi-parseable data table (actually its
    a complete horror). [ACPI has turned into such a catastrophe MS Win 98 OSR2
    basically doesnt use it]
