I was wondering about something in connection with this.  The em
interrupt handler is now a "fast" handler, but the interrupt is still
allocated with bus_alloc_resource_any(..., RF_SHAREABLE).  If I
remember correctly, fast interrupts cannot be shared.  So, isn't it
wrong to allocate the interrupt with RF_SHAREABLE?
