Provided they are routed through the openpic (raven) yes the
rtems_interrupt_* routines code is sufficient.

The level is required for a software implementation of interrupt
priorities for programmable controller that do not have this feature

I think the raven does manage priorities but then you have to deal also
with PC legacy interrupt priorities that are routed on a songle raven
interrupt source...

Then you should probably use a commercial OS and pay huge royalties fees
to have a more high level user oriented docs :-)
