Ron, my dual mobo (asus a7m266-d) (amd-762 chipset)
also uses this IRQ system. As
discussed before I thought I had tamed latency problems, but
indeed I have not. When I run this command while 'jackd -R' is
running (and a client is connected) I get massive overruns on
the order of 1-2 *seconds* every 5 seconds or so:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/path/for/bigfile bs=1000 count=1000000
This will write a one gig file as fast as possible. My IDE
drives are tuned properly with hdparm and I'm using SMP
2.4.20 + LL + preemp + radeonDRM. Also tried with 2.4.18 + LL.

Although my BIOS allows me to specify IRQs for slots, the numbers
there match the traditional style... not this >16 stuff. I tried
anyway, but no change in linux.
I just tried this test on another system, this one UP 2.4.20 +
LL, similar results. Anyone else care to try this informal
disk-loading test? If you have >= 1G of memory, use a
count=2000000 (2GB file).
