spurious 8259A interrupt: IRQ9.

Hmm, interesting.  As the 8259A can only signal IRQ7 and possibly IRQ15
as spurious interrupts, this smells like a bug in 8259A handlers,
regardless of system-specific problems you have.

We were getting interrupt 23 and calling do_IRQ() with a value of 9 (a bug, obviously). Interrupt 9 is masked so we get a "spurious 8259A interrupt" message.
