No, any available unused interrupt (in the VDM) is OK.

You're right; the interrupt is only used as a signal to the 16-bit real mode
stub, typically to get it execute a section of 16-bit code.

Normally the default interrupt 7 used by SwsVpkt works fine.  It's possible
that your system has this interrupt in use by another driver.
