    Should be fine.. If the driver distinguishes between the irqs, maybe
    you should do "eth0-rx dma", "eth0-tx dma", etc.

    Probably... but there may be a reason for that, too.
    drivers/net/atp.c, for example, does not use request_region because it
    uses the standard parallel ports. (ideally, of course, it should use
    the parport API...)
