I was looking at the interrupt counting code code in systat/vmstat.c
recently [1].  Most of the numbers displayed are 'event counters' not
'interrupt counters' - certainly on i386.
I don't know which architectures still need the interrupt counters,
or whether vmstat.c should only try looking for them if there are not
event counters.
