Looks to me like you overran the page for seq_printf, which then returned -1
which then triggered what appears to be some utterly bogus code in
show_interrupts():

for (j = 0; j < NR_CPUS; j++)
if (cpu_online(j))
p += seq_printf(p, "%10u ", irq_stat[j].apic_timer_irqs);

Why is it modifying `p' there? That's the pointer to the seq_file which
we're using.

Kill. Two instances.
