Sorry if I came on too strong- it was a shock to find something like
passing the interrupt vector to be specifically not
supported... Anyhow, a simple re-cast of the function pointer at
call-time to one that takes an int argument, then just adding the
vector parameter to the call works fine.  It also doesn't require
messing around with all your other existing work- so I'm not stuck.
Basically, only the pci interrupts get the vector passed to them and
nothing else is affected.
