PCI interrupts require active low, level triggering. ACPI SCI is
somewhat special and can also be active high. ISA is active hi and edge
triggered (IIRC). Point is that different polarities cannot coexist, so
whatever this ACPI table is doing is wrong. Either the override in the
MADT or the PCI routing entry.
