  There is a problem with deferring the level 6 interrupts.  It
causes signifcant problems with the MultiFaceCard III serial
driver.  There are also several SCSI adapters that use the level
6 interrupt (the two I am aware of are both 53c710-based boards).

  However, I do not see any problem with making the deferred
level 6 interrupts standard, with an option to process them
normally [LEV6_NORMAL?].
