Hardware hackers,

Why don't you have to set Interrupt Request vectors on boards
for the 3b1 like you do on boards added to PCs.  Is this just 
one of the pains in the PC architecture, or does the 3b1 know
how to avoid interrupt conflicts?  I've been wondering if maybe 
this has something to do with certain boards not working in some 
3b1s but working ok in others.

Any thoughts?
