cat /proc/interrupts
cat /proc/ioports

the /proc filesystem has what appear to be empty files that can give you
info about your kernel.  running cat on the file will query the kernel
and return certain values.  opening them in a text editor will do
nothing for you.  pagers seem to have varied results for me.
