I was tailing /var/log/messages today and this popped up:

Aug 29 16:25:09 ostraya kernel: spurious 8259A interrupt: IRQ7.

Does anyone know what it means?  I did a grep -c and found that I've got 24
instances of spurious kernel interrupts in the file (Which was started in
January), if that helps.  IRQ7 isn't anything right now.
