dmesg will show you what the kernel detects on boot-up, and is usually a good source of info.  If dmesg is full with something else (kernel messages), than you can check the dmesg.* files in /var/log

You can also use pciconf to list IRQ usage, and get some more details.

Good luck!

If dmesg is totally unaviable you can check sysctl (not verbose as dmesg):

> sysctl -a hw
