Had a patch for that, got shoot down for reasons I don't remember, 
attached for reference.  It basically allows IRQ sharing in case the two 
devices sharing the IRQ are of the same kind.  In that case you usually 
have a single guest driver handling both devices and IRQ sharing works 
most of the time.

I don't mind much which approach we take ...

Subject: [PATCH] isa: refine irq reservations

There are a few cases where IRQ sharing on the ISA bus is used and
possible.  In general only devices of the same kind can do that.
A few use cases:

  * serial lines 1+3 share irq 4
  * serial lines 2+4 share irq 3
  * parallel ports share irq 7
  * ppc/prep: ide ports share irq 13

This patch refines the irq reservation mechanism for the isa bus to
handle those cases.  It keeps track of the driver which owns the IRQ in
question and allows irq sharing for devices handled by the same driver.

I'm very indifferent myself :). This is not an issue we should waste too
much time/effort on.

Yeah, 3x -serial XXX is also broken for x86 targets as the third device
shares its IRQ with the first - like on real HW...
