[PATCH] irqpoll
Anyone reporting a stuck IRQ should try these options. Its effectiveness varies we've found in the Fedora case. Quite a few systems with misdescribed IRQ routing just work when you use irqpoll. It also fixes up the VIA systems although thats now fixed with the VIA quirk (which we could just make default as its what Redmond OS does but Linus didn't like it historically). A small number of systems have jammed IRQ sources or misdescribes that cause an IRQ that we have no handler registered anywhere for. In those cases it doesn't help.
