is it possible to implement such a feature that driver requests INTR_FAST
and it succeds only and only if interrupt isn't shared?

For example I've got a console server with three puc devices. Since one of them
share its irq with ATA, I can't trun on PUC_FASTINTR on this box. However,
theoretically it is possible two make two pucs use a fast interrupt
handler and one not.

Totus tuus, Glebius.
