In case it wasn't already abundently clear, I'd like you to NOT backport
the IRQ changes. I think they're stable now, but we don't have time to
fix any resulting bugs before Sarge.

I'd like to be sure that the resulting images are suitable for booting
on all the machines that ought to work. Here's a list of suitable test
machines and notes of what they have:
- 712 (LASI serial, net and scsi)
- C3000 (SBA, SuckyIO serial, ns87415 ide, sym2 scsi, Tulip net)
- K450 (Mux serial, CCIO, zalon scsi, LASI net)
- A500 (64-bit, SBA, sym2 scsi, Tulip net)
"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon
the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those
conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince
himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
