Just a patch to get a HighPoint controller to work. The ac4 patch

Or is there a way to get eth0 to run on another IRQ?

I've had the exact same problem with a single port eepro card, but I
it defaulted to IRQ 5 as well.

The box has been up for 18 hours without reboot now after I added the
noapic line. So time will tell if that helps.
