That leads to another problem with this code. My current implementation
is such that is a target queue is full, it will pick another target.
But here, we still update act_server to the passed-in server and
not the actual target...

So my thinking here was that act_priority was never going to be MASKED
except if the interrupt had never been targetted anywhere at machine
startup time. Thus if act_priority is masked, the act_server field
cannot be trusted.
