Thats not really a solution as I don't want a
system thats processing 100s of interrupts per
second for no reason. I previously reported that
these were gone, but now that I put another card
in the box (a dual port intel ethernet), they're
I know I've been told that its a bios
configuration problem, however I don't get stray
interrupts if I pop a FreeBSD disk on the exact
same hardware. So why is it a misconfiguration in
DFLY but not in FreeBSD?
