Now that you're talking about it: I also
experienced some of those strange problems, and on my box i still get
stray ints (11 I think) when switching virtual consoles or pressing any
*lock key (!?).

It basically means: something fishy is
happening, DragonFly/FreeBSD did notice that, continued working, but told
you. Maybe we can add a sysctl which rate-limits those messages to a
reasonable amount?


FreeBSD (4.9+ at least) quashes them after the first dozen or so. But I still don't get why ints are getting generated when no device on that irq has been enabled.

Matt explained it all in an earlier post: http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/mailarchive/users/2006-06/msg00011.html
