The API I implemented provides isOn function and a call to get the full 
irq table... I do not know waht the new will bring.

The call is :
int BSP_rtems_irq_mngt_get(rtems_irq_global_settings**);

What I mean regarding IRQ names is that the Intel code will always us 
the irq value provided by the PCI configuration space while PPC will 
provide something else...
