Not necessarily. :-)

That's not the right fix. There's a bug in Linux's ACPI IRQ setup as
I've discovered by comparing the code to the spec. Here's a patch I sent
in December both to the LKML and the ACPI maintainer. The feedback from
the list was positive, but the maintainer didn't bother to comment.

I haven't pushed the patch more firmly, because the MIPS port is my
priority and I don't even have any ACPI-aware equipment.
