yes, I know

sure, since the beginning I've been using that option plus some other I
found around, e.g. "pci_csc=0" and booting with "pci=biosirq", but
nothing really helped.

indeed I guessed so, in the PC where everything works fine the card has
been given IRQ 5 and no problem ever showed up, here for some reason I
get IRQ 19 and this odd behaviour. Probably the MB has some quirk? It is
a dual CPU MB, maybe this collides somehow with the Ricoh card?
> Use "irq_mode=0" as argument for "i82365" module.
the log I reported was obtained using that option and that module :-(
