Hi,
 
Interrupt input are normally tied to the interrupt controller and are used for peripherals.
Breaks (Ext_BRK and Ext_NM_BRK) inputs are normally only used by the MDM module for trying to get control over MicroBlaze.
 
There is a chapter in MicroBlaze Reference Guide called "Reset, Interrupts, Exceptions and Break" which goes into more details on this.
