Traditional - that message has been there for a long, long time.
Used to get it on the first VMEbus SPARC SunOS systems.

I suspect it is there to reportthe hard lockup that would otherwise
happen is the interrupt request wasn't removed.

I can think of some obvious extra checks:
1) That the IRQ is still asserted.
2) That calling all the ISR functions again still leaves it 'splurious'.

In that case it is very likely a stuck IRQ (and may need masking!).
