Whether the former count is too high depends on the I/O amount
going through each controller. Of course it is possible for there to
be spikes that usually don't reach the 99,900 cutoff point, but
once in a while do. Figuring whether that's the case would require
adding a little bit more verbosity to
kernel/irq/spurious.c:note_interrupt(), e.g. to warn when having
reached half the threshold.
