Ahh grepping qemu gave a pointer, it's probably the code in:

http://xenbits.xen.org/gitweb/?p=qemu-xen.git;a=blob;f=hw/xen/xen_pt_msi.c;h=ff9a79f5d27ad7d74a1b22297be560feb455063c;hb=5cd7ce5dde3f228b3b669ed9ca432f588947bd40

around line 571, that would also explain why it's only this device that
has the problem, since it's the only one trying to use MSI(-X)
interrupts. Will see it i can add some logging to that function.
