Hmmm, you're right.  The only difference that this workstation has from
the one I use at work regarding interrupts is that here (where the silo
overflows occur) irq9 is shared among ohci2 and acpi0.

   20  ??  WL     0:00.00 [irq9: ohci2 acpi0]

I vaguely remember having problems with silo overflows again in the
past; when irq9 was shared.  Now I have to find out how to assign
another irq to ohci2.

Thanks Roman :-)
