That does not mean FreeBSD 9 can't put devices on other interrupts than 8  
'dmesg | grep irq' like you did before might show a difference with your  
previous output.
I'm just guessing here for a clue on the result you are seeing, but  
without any data I cannot answer you (and I guess nobody can).
