Florian and M A Young have reported success with 3.4.3-rc, so it isn't
completely non-functional.  How essential are those changes?   28089
doesn't appear in my tree ("abort: unknown revision '28089'"), but 21092
("Allow all unused GSI to be configured via IO-APIC by new pv_ops dom0")
and 21161 ("Make c/s 21089 work again with c/s 21092") both look pertient.
