Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: munin

This is basically just copying http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-

The "irqstats" plugin cannot handle the new /proc/interrupts format and
emits warnings on every run:

> Argument "shootdowns" isn't numeric in addition (+) at
/etc/munin/plugins/irqstats line 62, <$in> line 18.

Since Hardy (LTS!) ships with linux-image-2.6.24, this (cosmetic) bug could be worth fixing. 
Upstream fixed this with a one-liner: http://munin.projects.linpro.no/ticket/598
