Thanks, I hadn't seen this one yet.

I suspect this is in the middle of the ENABLE_INTERRUPTS() paravirt
code, which would mean this is another issue that will be fixed by my
"Make pv ops code generation more closely match reality" patches.

If you can share either the entry_64.o file or the .config, and what
virt platform it's running on (kvm, xen, native), I should be able to
confirm the issue.

I'm in Prague this week but I should have a v2 of those patches in a
week or two (will cc you).
