[mythtv] lockups revisited

So it figures that moments after I send my previous email, I get a
lockup ... However, it did go a LOT longer than it used to. So then I
shut down and did a little spring cleaning. I actually had two ethernet
cards in that machine (don't ask), so I took out the unused one and
moved my PVR250 into that slot (strictly out of superstition). Then I
took some advice from ( I believe it was ) the ivtv mailing list and
took everything off IRQ 9. Lastly, I disabled USB on that machine,
because I recall when it was a windows box I always had weird problems
with USB support (interestingly, the USB hubs were on IRQ 9).
Incidentally, this is a KT133A motherboard, which several people have
commented on as having various compat problems.
Well, long story short, or rather long story long, it's been going
strong for a while now without any problems ... In the spirit of
science, I of course changed 100 different variables at once and have no
idea which is actually the root cause, but for anyone in my boat, you
might want to take a look at each of the things I did and see if it
makes a diff. for you.
