Interrupt sharing is sorta "normal" though I expect each PCI slot
to have it's own interrupt on PowerMacs. I'm not sure why OHare
advertise an interrupt line, I suspec it is bogus (though it should
not affect you). OHare actually contains the interrupt controller
and has a whole lot of interrupts for it's internal devices that
are directly connected to the controller inputs. I don't think
it's "PCI" interrupt makes any sense.

Look at /proc/interrupts after the driver is loaded to see what
interrupts are actually used.
