And for your first culprit, I'd look at the sound system; the second most 
likely, on one of my laptops the PCMCIA system can actually assign specific
IRQs to specific slots... I've heard of "plug and play" flags eating IRQs...
see if your CMOS setting contain any annoying IRQ references that mention 
the offending value.

Linux usually should be considered to NOT use the "plug and play OS" flag --
we act plug and play at a user perspective in many cases, but what the flag
really means is to move around in request to plug-n-pray signals, and we 
don't do things that way.  Moving IRQs around while the system is live 
probably *would* wedge something.

Best of luck
