Randy, do you have an MSI-X device perhaps? Could you try the patch
below?

Subject: genirq MSI fixes
From: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>

This is a fixed up and cleaned up replacement for genirq-msi-fixes.patch,
which should solve the i386 4KSTACKS problem. I also added Ben's idea of
pushing the __do_IRQ() check into generic_handle_irq().

I booted this with MSI enabled, but i only have MSI devices, not MSI-X
devices. I'd still expect MSI-X to work now.

irqchip migration helper: call __do_IRQ() if a descriptor is attached to an
irqtype-style controller. This also fixes MSI-X IRQ handling on i386 and
x86_64.
