I'm not sure Linus would accept it. He seems to be in deep code-freeze mode
at the moment. The code we have at the moment does work so it should probably
be left alone.

There's no reason it couldn't go into the m68k tree now -- it doesn't look
like 2.2 will work out of the box on m68k anyway.

Apparently it's because of the details of the Amiga hardware. It does seem
slightly strange but I assume the m68k people know what they're doing.

If the lowlevel driver handles the interrupts, it can perform whatever strange
acknowledge behaviour is needed either before or after the highlevel driver
