Interrupt hick ups

Since a few kernel versions (late 2.3.x), I see interrupt hick ups when doing
disk access on my Sym53c875. I.e. when I'm typing something and the disk
shows a lot of activity, keystrokes and mouse moves happen in burst with some
delay (ca. 2 seconds).

Anyone seeing a similar thing? This is on a CHRP LongTrail.

In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
