That's odd indeed. If you're up to do a little bit of debugging here,
why don't you log the sequence of interrupts arriving both with
and without said commit. This might end up being a lot of data, so
you may want to filter out uninteresting stuff and/or log only to
a memory buffer which then gets dumped upon some debug key
press. Similarly, checking whether the issue is reproducible with
Xen running on only a single pCPU might help reducing the amount
of data, or at least the time needed to analyze it.
