I'm actually not quite sure what exactly he's describing here. But if it's

you plug in onto the PCI bus can't bypass the interrupt logic of the bus, as 
the only interrupt wires they have go to the bus. And since the PCI adapters we

There actually is a special device in qemu - acpi power management is configured as a PCI device, but its interrupt is hard-wired to gsi 9 and is edge-triggered (so it can't share the irq line).

I other devices that are special in this regard to also be part of the chipset, not devices you can plug into arbitrary slots.
