    I also see this message on a machine I have occasional access to. On
    that machine, there also doesn't seem to be any real conflict.

    It's only an informational message. There is a bit in a register that
    is supposed to be the current value of the IRQ line or something, and
    that's the trigger for that message.

    Perhaps I read the spec wrong when I put it in, because it doesn't
    seem to be accurate at all.

    For now though, ignore it.
