Please remove this from the regression list. This seems to be an
userspace only problem and is not related to any kernel driver:
amarok and/or audacious seems to repeatedly read/write to the X socket:

But i didn't have a look at what is going on here. But running amarok
and/or audacious (without playing a song!) adds 50-70 more interrupts to
the timer interrupt.

with kind regards
