Oops, I misread the data sheet. 0x60 is correct, 0x30 is wrong. The
irq number is in the lowest 3 bits.

I think it should use non-specific EOIs and send them early (when
there is no ambiguity about which interrupt is being handled), as in
the i386 port. Sending them late mainly gives the ICU's braindamaged
interrupt priority scheme for longer than necessary.
