I'm not allowed to report second hand rumors from the folks who assisted with
the debug of the x440 HAL, so I won't mention that they may or may not be
using clustered logical interrupts and adjusting priority with the TPR.

I can admit that I have no clue how they assign IRQs to APIC clusters, whether
randomly or if they try some load balancing scheme.
