Also the GoldenGateII bridge connects all ISA interrupts to INT6. The
ISA kit did not make it to 1.1 (I suppose interrupts being at level 6
can be blamed for that) but it does work for me (finally).
I'm not sure but I think that I might get overrepetitive keys
sometimes (or might be just shaking hands :)
I do not use LEV6_DEFER as I don't understand how it works. For
example with GGII those level 6 interrupts should (shouldn't they?) be
acknowledged (and maybe blocked) in the device causing them in the
real INT6 handler. This means that one can't schedule a lower level
interrupt without knowledge about the device which caused the level 6
interrupt. Isn't this what LEV6_DEFER tries to do?
