I'm not sure what the issue is you think you're seeing. You're right, 
the index into ci_isources is a slot number, and does not necessarily 
have a relation to any pin numbers.

The macro "num" argument is used to get the right intrsource structure, 
which contains all the needed hardware information. Note that while the 
"num" argument is passed to the mask/unmask macros, it isn't actually 
used there, because only the information from struct intrsource is used.
