cat /proc/interrupts will tell you what IRQ your card is on and if any
other devices are on the same IRQ.  Usually calls dropping is caused by
callprogress=yes or busydetect=yes (the beaten, bloody, dead horse is in
the archives).  If your card was sharing IRQs then the expected symptom
would be poor audio quality, not dropped calls.
