Subject: Is it possible to change IRQ for certain device?

Hello lkml,

I have problem with my computer: I have motherboard with AMD690G chipset
and nVidia VGA card. But I cannot set BIOS, to assign for VGA unique
IRQ. VGA card is sharing IRQ with two ohci_hcd (USB 1.1 controllers).
But when I want use for X proprietary nvidia driver, X didn't work with
this errors:

In dmesg:

NVRM: RmInitAdapter failed! (0x23:0xffffffff:678)
NVRM: rm_init_adapter(0) failed

and in /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

(II) Setting vga for screen 0.

(==) NVIDIA(0): RGB weight 888

(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

I've found in README for NVIDIA, that VGA has to have unique IRQ. I've
tried to set INTERRUPT_LINE and INTERRUPT_PIN with setpci tool, set
pci=routeirq, pci=noacpi as the kernel boot parameters, but IRQ
is still the same.

Is there a way to change IRQ for VGA (or for ohci_hcd instead of VGA)
directly in Linux?

Thanks a lot.

Jan Marek
