I installed the 1.5W snapshot onto my DS10 and it seems to have brought
back some bugs I worked around earlier...namely atrocious system
performance (7 hour kernel build atrocious) anytime the USB system is
compiled into the kernel.

The system, according to top, is spending 60-70% of its time in interrupt
service...and the syslog is recording constant "stray irq 10" and "stray
irq 1" messages.  IRQ 10 is the OHCI USB interface, or so dmesg says.

Although I can work around it by removing ohci and usb support from the
kernel...any ideas on how to solve the problem?
