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?

If it's there, and you can see it, it's real.
If it's not there, and you can see it, it's virtual.
If it's there, and you can't see it, it's transparent.
If it's not there, and you can't see it, you erased it.
