Or in interrupt handling in general. The interrupts seem to be really
spurious, not triggered by the timer. I think I fixed one bug in
slavio today, but I need more reading slavio docs. With the fix
solaris 9 seems to boot as well. Although it still complains about
spurious interrupts, but with the fix it happens once a second and not
hundreds times a second as before.

The performance is not affected, so either the fix is incomplete, or I
took a wrong trail
