Right. The puzzle is that it worked and stopped working at some point and
the cure is to revert a change in the irq core. That change fixed a
regression in MSI and basically restores previous behaviour which should be
very similar to the behaviour in the working old (4.9) kernel.
Still trying to wrap my head around that, but of course everything is a
moving part since then (interrupts, network, ....)
