irqban questions

Hi Neil et al,

I was wondering about the best way to configure irqbalance to ignore
particular IRQs without hard-coding their IRQ numbers into
/etc/sysconfig/irqbalance or manually starting the daemon.

I was wondering if something like this would work:

   IRQBALANCE_ARGS="--banirq=$(get IRQ1#) --banirq=$(get IRQ2#)"

or better yet:

  IRQBALANCE_ARGS="--banirq=desc1 --banirq=desc2"

where descX would be the IRQ description.

Alternatively, is there anyway to mark irqs as banned once the daemon
has already started?
