I was wondering about that from an efficiency point of view. Since
interrupts are generally targetted to a single CPU, there's no cacheline
bouncing to speak of, except for interrupts like TLB shootdown on x86.
It might make sense for the percpu interrupts to still sum them at read
time, and not sum them at interrupt time.
