Thanks for looking into this. It does look like I inverted the ordering of
that mailbox write vs the handling of the IPI. I don't see how the IPI
could mess with the mailbox (unless some creative use of irq_work /
smp_call), but in any case having the write in irq_ack() as you've done
below should restore said ordering.
