Just another data point:

Seems that the interrupt rate doubled for drm0 on my system 
(from 60 to 120 driving a LCD at 60Hz vertical refresh).

I thought this might be a problem with shared interrupts (drm0
and xl0 shared APIC IRQ 16), but removing the (actually unused)
xl driver did not make a difference ...
