I have interrupts 0,1,2,14, and 15 defined, but none of them associated
with the NIC.  However, when I boot SuSE, IRQ 9 is associated with both
acpi and eth0.  I have not enabled audio on the LFS system, so that
would explain the absence of acpi, but I don't understand the absence of
an IRQ for the NIC.
