Is there any device which uses DMA on your machine?
Could DMA interrupts happen even if it's disabled?

atari/intr.c:intr_dispatch() function calls all established interrupt
handlers, so maybe we should not clear the interrupt register unless
it's actually processed in that handler.
(though I don't know about MFP interrupt registers on atari)

How about to handle MFP register only if wdcintr() returns non zero?
(Though this might cause a race condition if other DMA interrupts occur
 during wdcintr(). If IB_DINT is also shared among dma and wdc,
 maybe we should prepare special establish and dispatch functions for it)

static int
wdc_mb_intr(void *arg, int sr)
        int rv;

        rv = wdcintr(arg);
        if (rv != 0)
                MFP->mf_iprb = (u_int8_t)~IB_DINT;

        return rv;
