sys/arch/hpcarm/hpcarm/softintr.c rev. 1.9 should fix this problem
(for hpcarm).  I guess hpcmips's problem is also due to some interrupt
handling bug.

I imagine this problem happens only with newer CF cards as slower ones
(like my old 160MB SanDisk) raise interrupts after the interrupt
handler finishes.
