This does seem strange since we have been booting our db800 with 
etherboot. So, are you trying this on a db800 or on your own platform 

One thing you could try is changing the IRQ mapping to isolate the IRQs.
In the mainboard diirectory change irq_tables.c PIRQB to something else 
like 5 to isolate it.
