Peter Chubb's solution for user-space interrupts seems to turn the asynchronous nature of interrupts into polling, which is certainly not asynchronous and is something I learned to dislike as a real-time programmer. This might work for some drivers but it doesn't sound like a good general solution. SGI's ULI at least retains the asynchronicity of interrupts.
