[LinuxBIOS] Geode GX1 system IRQ handling

So I'm back to working on getting LB on my Geode-based MaxTerm 230 thin 
client again.  I've built a test image from the Eaglelion 5bcm target 
that boots this machine.  However, IRQ mapping is not working.  I have 
no doubt that is because the MaxTerm differs from the 5bcm.  :-)

I'm not entirely sure how to proceed.  I know I can create PIRQ tables, 
but in some posts, I've seen mention that this is outdated and ACPI 
should be used.  Even if I were to build a PIRQ table, the usual method 
of booting with the system's default BIOS is out of the question.  The 
MaxTerm only ran WinCE 3.0, and has a WinCE BIOS instead of a full PC 
BIOS.  Unless someone knows of a WinCE system inspection tool that might 
reveal the IRQ assignments.

Advice appreciated....
