Ok, I've looked at the FreeBSD code and it special-cases the SCI interrupt
in sys/i386/acpica/madt.c and forces it to be level and low polarity. To
fix it properly, we should probably port the madt.c from FreeBSD, but a
quick hack would be to test the sci interrupt for polarity/type and always
force it. Frank probably can do this in a few minutes, it would take me
hours to figure out.
