Thanks for getting back to me.
IRQ 11 is shared with an ethernet device and the wan device.
Registers are checked and if the interrupt is serviced I do
return 1, otherwise 0. I'm wondering if it's something else
that I may have misconfigured when setting up the interrupt.
It sits behind a pci-pci bridge.

If you are on a shared interrupt, you will get interrupts
that are not caused by your define. You have to deal with
that. In your interrupt routine query the device to see if
the interrupt is yours. If so, process it and return 1.
If not, return 0.
