I just sent it (still not sure this is what Eduardo expected):

This is not related to your isa-fdc bug however.

I just noticed this patch thread and from John mail:
"the way we assign IRQs to ISA devices is kind of simple and not
trivial to undo correctly"

I also hit this in my series "remove i386/pc dependency from non-PC world".
So far I plan to send my work in 4 parts, the ISA bus codebase would
end PC-agnostic.

My current problem is indeed inter-devices IRQ circular dependencies,
solved in the Malta board using qemu_irq_proxy(). Then not sure yet
how to unrealize them :)
