SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/2] x86_64 irq: Handle irqs pending in IRR during irq migration.
As I reported when I tested this patch, it works, but I could see an 
abnormally high load averay while triggering the error message. anyway, it
is better to have an high load averag three or four times higher than what
you would expect then a crash/reboot. isn't it? :)

Luigi Genoni

p.s.
will test the other definitive patch on montday on both 8 and 16 CPU
system.
