 I'm seeing this too. The problem is probably in something called by the
 clock handler, but I failed to find what. It's not a real problem because
 the Xen interrupt code will restore the IPL, but this means that
 something is not restoring the IPL properly somewhere.
 But it should be completely unrelated to the ring corruption issue.
