Another parameter is that this box is using a amr(4) controller. It's
my only system with an amr(4) running -current, and I can't reproduce this
on onther -current Xen dom0.
The amr(4) interrupt routine can be called from interrupt context,
or a kernel thread. Under heavy I/O load some of the I/O request completion
could be handled from thread context and not interrupt context.
