IIRC irqpoll is a workaround for some bizzare kernel bug that they
could not fix otherwise. I have a similar problem since 220.127.116.11, I also
had this problem with Ubuntu kernels since Hoary or so, and with
resuming after suspend-to-ram with all regular kernels since 2.6.6.
IRQ 11: Nobody cared...
and then just behaving odd. IRQ 11 is the one for my onboard periphery
controller, so my USB is broken (mouse jumps when moved, like having
only 1 dpi instead of 800dpi), my NIC is broken (mii-tool says ok but
its loosing all packages) etc.pp.
