That's an interesting point, I always wondered if/when overloading a
single interrupt (as ACPI does on my laptop) leads to performance
problems. It would be good to see the output of ``cat /proc/interrupts''
in this case.

I fixed the interrupt overloading on my laptop by booting with
acpi=noirq, BTW.
