Will test 3.18 with only patch 1 after dinner.

Hmm funky .. now that you mention it .. i'm seeing that as well but only on an
intel machine.

intel .. on 3.19:
52: 13529 0 0 0 xen-pirq-msi 0000:00:1f.2

on my amd machine on 3.19 it seems ok though:

114: 412535 0 0 0 0 0 xen-pirq-msi ahci0
115: 0 0 0 0 0 0 xen-pirq-msi ahci1
116: 16717 0 0 0 0 0 xen-pirq-msi ahci2
117: 0 0 0 0 0 0 xen-pirq-msi ahci3
118: 0 0 0 0 0 0 xen-pirq-msi ahci4
119: 0 0 0 0 0 0 xen-pirq-msi ahci5
