Shared irq's are a hardware and motherboard issue, not a operating system
issue. You have to be able to setup your hardware NOT to use shared IRQ's
if you can.
This has been a problem on PC's since the first IBM PC rolled out, and
still continues today. That is why special multiport cards were created to
manage multiple resources on a single card/interrupt. In the dark ages
that meant multiple port serial cards to run terminals on, etc.
