Should be right. If it's possibile, you can try if moving eth0 to
another slot could give it it's own irq.

I think it should work with both of your cards: eth1 uses newer type
of interrupts - are you sure it's e100?

You can also check if it really fixes the problem by booting with
a kernel parameter: noirqbalance.
