Ok - the IRQ8 get enabled because i have CONFIG_RTC set and in
drivers/char/rtc.c around line 730 it requests:

if(request_irq(RTC_IRQ, rtc_interrupt, SA_INTERRUPT, "rtc", NULL))

Immediatly afterwards the massive ammount of IRQs. With 100Hz and 160
Chars across the screen - I would expect 1-2 lines/s on the screen.
Instead the screen fills up within tens of seconds which seems to me
like non acked IRQ.
