I'll try to reproduce this, but this is weird. This is vector 34,
which is, or could be, a genuine IRQ vector. The only way I can think
of that my series would have caused this is if I very severely broke
common_interrupt, but I don't see how that could have happened without
breaking everything. It's also weird that you're seeing this only on
CPU 16. Maybe it's worth adding a WARN_ON to that warning to get a
stack trace just in case.

Thomas, any insight here?

Ingo, are you saying that you only get the IRQ vector warnings with
the SYSCALL hwframe fix applied? That's bizarre.

Anyway, I booted your config (more or less -- I munged it through
virtme-configkernel --update first) with 17 vCPUs and it seems fine.
Is the issue reliable enough to bisect?
