A quick grep in src/sys gave me this:

MALLOC_DEFINE(M_INTRNG, "intr", "intr interrupt handling");


arm/arm/machdep.c:#if __ARM_ARCH >= 6 && !defined(INTRNG)
arm/arm/machdep.c:#error armv6 requires INTRNG

So it's about interrupts and mandatory for arm processors, I suspect
it's and arm (and mips too, since I found grep hits there too) specific
interrupts handling method.

this looks like the original RFC for this code:
