It would be useful, but .... Andrew's problem is something else. It is 
almost useful in this case to have the error propagate to Linux since it 
is revealing a problem.

I wonder if Adam Sulmicki has done IRQ initialization support since they
support many OSes. 

Also, generic code won't solve the special-cases we are seeing. But it is
still worth having. It would make our Plan 9 work much easier, since Plan
9's IRQ code doesn't work correctly in several cases.
