    Report it to Maybe you'll get help there.
    But "bugs" are _very_ hardware specific, so just a few people will have
    a similar problem and most of this people are just "normal" users -- not
    Linux Kernel developers. The developer (people who are familiar with the
    kernel code and who are maybe able to fix this problem) aren't able to
    reproduce this error and test code to get it working. So they're maybe
    (without knowing anything about the hardware (maybe it's broken
    hardware?)) not able to say something specific about the hardware --
    they can just guess.
    You see it's very difficult to fix such irq problems because some
    factors can cause such an error.
    Maybe contacting specific malinglists (e.g. for "broken" pci cards the
    pci mailinglist, etc.), maintainers or developers would be more
    efficient (cc the lkml) and solve your problem (faster), because this
    people are specialists are this type of hardware (e.g. pci).

    What hardware is connect through irq 5?
